Missouri State Winter Guards 2024 Competition Season Travel

Winter Guard began at Missouri State (then SMSU) in 1987 with what is now the group called The Pride of Missouri State. In 1997, a second winter guard, National Avenue, was founded, and then in 2002 began the third Missouri State Winter Guard - 901 Performance Ensemble.

2024 is a milestone year for our Missouri State Winter Guards. It was 30 years ago this year that The Pride of Missouri State (then The Pride of SMSU) made finals at WGI World Championships. In 2004, 20 years ago, National Avenue made finals for the first time at WGI World Championships. In 2023, The Pride of Missouri State was the WGI World Championships Open Class Bronze Medalist which has promoted them to compete in World Class in the 2024 season.

To help our students in their fundraising efforts to attend winter guard competitions both regionally and nationally, we are asking for you help in their campaign to raise money for their travel expenses. Every dollar and each share helps them meet their goals. Thank you, in advance, for your help!

Please reach out to John Sullivan with any questions about this campaign. 

 *Your charitable donation is tax-deductible. In addition, MSU alumni who make a qualifying gift of $50 or more receive a V.I.B.card - Very Important Bear.
