This year’s American Legion color guard contest has been moved from its normal day of Saturday to Friday, Aug. 24, during the 94th National Convention in Indianapolis.
“The decision to move the National Color Guard Contest to Friday evening is a great step forward,” said Dave Priester, chief contest judge. “This move allows delegates, usually in meetings on Saturday morning, an opportunity to watch and support their favorite American Legion color guard.
“I cannot think of a better way to start the convention weekend. The pageantry of the contest is not only a testament to past and present military members, but also to our national flag.”
The band contest will be Saturday, Aug. 25, its traditional day. Contact the Convention & Meetings Office at 317) 630-1292 with any questions. Updated rules and entry forms for both contests are available on the Convention Web page.
