Voxitatis waives the non-commercial and share-alike use restrictions for any photos on this page used for editorial purposes, provided no students are named, as it is strictly against our policies to identify students in photographs. The participation of the group is newsworthy, as it concerns fine arts programming in US schools, but the participation of individual students is not newsworthy. In almost 15 years of marching band coverage, Voxitatis has never violated this policy.
