WGI 2014 Logo The WGI Percussion World Championships is the premier showcase for indoor percussion ensembles. The event is produced by WGI Sport of the Arts which also produces the WGI Color Guard World Championships one week prior to the percussion event. Last year's WGI Championships drew 11,000 participants over two weekends, including nearly 300 color guards and 200 percussion ensembles from 40 states and 5 countries.

The percussion contest features preliminary rounds in eight classes of competition, providing opportunities for units at all levels of expertise, from beginning to advanced. Scholastic units draw members from the same high school. Independent units draw members who are not necessarily affiliated with a particular school. Concert units do not include marching in their programs. Up to 15 units in each division advance to the Finals round, where medals are awarded to the top three finishers.

WGI is focused on education and provides curriculum materials for classes in equipment, movement and design. WGI also provides a full educational program for instructors and judges. The organization promotes higher education by annually awarding $20,000 in academic scholarships to student performers. Winter guard and indoor percussion are the fastest growing of the marching arts, and high school marching bands benefit from the skills developed in these winter programs.

WGI defines public display as a web site, printed publication or physical location where the public at large can gain access to one or more images of a WGI participating group in performance.
