Jazz Festival Sweepstakes Winners
We are proud to recognize the winners of the coveted The Dale Beacock Memorial Sweepstakes Award!
One of our most exciting traditions at the Clark College Jazz Festival is the presentation
of the celebrated Sweepstakes Award. The Sweepstakes Award originated in 1963 to recognize
the most outstanding band selected by the adjudicators from the entire festival. The
winning ensemble remains that year's Sweepstakes Band until the next festival when
they in turn, pass on the title and distinctive trophy to the next year's recipient.
Along with the distinction of being recognized as the top band from the entire festival, the Sweepstakes Band will return as the showcased group to perform on a non-competitive basis on the final evening of the finals competition.
In 2023, our panel of adjudicators awarded the Dale Beacock Memorial Sweepstakes Award to Mountain View School Jazz I Band. We look forward to hearing this band perform on the final evening concert next year at the 2024 60th Annual Clark College Jazz Festival!
