The Banko's Music Foundation STOMP program awards outstanding music students from the local public schools a certificate of excellence and a Banko’s music store gift card every marking period of the school year. The students are nominated by their teachers for their achievements and stand-out efforts and talents. 

It is the hope of the Foundation that by acknowledging the talent and hard work of these students, we can give additional encouragement to them, their parents and teachers, and also motivate other students to participate in band, orchestra and other musical activities.
