The chosen winner plays a solo with the Denver Concert Band at its Spring concert and receives a scholarship for $2,000. A reception in the student's honor is held after the concert. Many of the Band's past scholarship winners have gone on to play music in college and even professionally. This program has been in existence since 1977.
