Default Band merit ceremonies

Does your band do any type of merit ceremonies?
When new members work their way up to the parade band, or ceremonial band, or competition band, is there any recognition?

Our band never has, but we hadn't really considered it- good food for thought...

What you’ve described ,IMHO, is simply meeting a band expectation in exchange for all the free lessons,focu time, education ,etc.
Going into a higher grade solo comp 1st time and landing in the winners circle due to individual efforts is,I think,worth a wink and merit nod in front of the band...and as possible grooming for PS and upwards.

Just me...no participation trophies.
