It is our deepest pleasure to announce the 2020 MCGC scholarship winners! Please see this list for all scholarship winners. While we wish we could celebrate the accomplishments of each of these winners in person, we hope you will reach out and congratulate them yourselves on this well-deserved achievement!
The MCGC Board of Directors and MCGC Scholarship Committee
To the performing members, directors, staff, volunteers and fans of the Michigan Color Guard Circuit,
MCGC will suspend all remaining events for the 2020 competitive season. Following recommendations from the State of Michigan and realizing the fast changing and evolving concerns of the coronavirus, the Board of Directors voted for the health and safety of all who would attend or perform.
We appreciate and would prefer to celebrate every unit's accomplishments during our championships ceremonies and finish our competitive season. We are not only board members; we are directors, instructors, parents and fans who love the activity. This was not an easy decision to make and realize the impact it has on many. We grieve with you all.
Team Michigan, we want to wish you all health and comfort during this time. We look forward to seeing you again in 2021.
MCGC Board of Directors

The Michigan Color Guard Circuit is accepting applications from potential concourse vendors for MCGC Championships at the Ryder Center on the campus of Saginaw Valley State University. The dates of this year’s event are Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29. Vendor spaces are assigned on a first come-first served basis determined by postmark of this returned form, attached check, as well as longevity as an MCGC vendor. Please note – no food or drink is to be sold at vendor booths.
The MCGC Regional A Championships will be held on Saturday, March 21, 2020 at Flushing High School in Flushing, Michigan. If you would like to be a vendor at that show, you can contact Reneé Cole at [email protected]. That contest, and ticketing, are not connected to or a part of this application form.
Scholarships are available to MCGC performers to assist in paying for educational opportunities like camps and clinics, or for membership dues for ensembles. Please see the application form below for more information.
Applications for scholarships are due by February 15.
