Awards and Honors

Types of Awards

To recognize outstanding contributions to The Ohio State University Marching Band and TBDBITL Alumni Club, five distinct awards have been created: The Script Ohio Award, the Elvin Donaldson Most Inspirational Alumni Bandsman Award, the Diamond Ohio Award and Honorary Membership in TBDBITL, and the TBDBITL Certificate of Appreciation.
