Recently, six PWCS schools were awarded the VMEA Blue Ribbon School Award. This award is given to a school whose symphonic band, chamber orchestra, and vocal ensemble all receive superior ratings at District Assessment. Battlefield, Colgan, Osbourn Park, Stonewall Jackson, and Woodbridge High Schools and Benton Middle School all received this award.

Stonewall Jackson was also recently recognized with the National Association for Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation SupportMusic Merit Award. This award recognizes schools that show support of and dedication to quality music education. This is the fourth year in a row that Stonewall Jackson has been given this award. Stonewall Jackson is the only school in Prince William County, one of four schools in the state, and one of 98 schools nationally to be recognized with this award.

Congratulations to these schools awarded for their excellence in music performance!
