The Collinsville Crimson Cadets added one more sweepstakes award to their collection today in Stillwater on the campus of Oklahoma State University. This made the 20th consecutive year that the Cadets have won the sweepstakes award. It takes a year long effort to win the sweepstakes. Bands must first get a superior rating in marching at the regional contest, which this year was held in Skiatook. Then they must receive a superior rating at the district contest in concert band, which was held in Bartlesville. Bands are then qualified for state and a chance to win the sweepstakes. Collinsville did this today with superior ratings in playing, and then again in sight reading. In sight reading, they are given music they have never seen before, and have 5 minutes to go over it, their directors point out complications in the music, and then they have to play it for the judges.
