“More than 400 corps have participated in the DCI World Championships since our beginning,” said Bob Jacobs, DCI senior director of marketing. “Some of these groups were only around for a season or two, others a bit longer and yet others which have taken part every year since the humble beginning in Whitewater, Wisconsin in 1972. The DCI 50th Anniversary Sweepstakes gives worldwide fans of drum corps the opportunity to celebrate all of these groups, and their unique contributions to the rich tapestry of the DCI experience.”

In honor of this half-century milestone, 50 lucky fans will be randomly selected to win great prizes, including a 2023 World Championships grand prize package valued at $5,000!
