In order to earn the All-Music Award, individual students and large ensembles were required to participate in every sanctioned ISSMA event and earn a gold rating. The level of difficulty of the music was primarily in the Group I category. Band events included the ISSMA district Solo and Ensemble contest, ISSMA Jazz Festival and ISSMA Organizational Festival.
The PMMS Jazz Band competed in the Jazz competition at Whiteland HS and received a gold rating in Group I, the highest level of competition for a middle school/junior high Jazz band.
