Instituted in 1992 by long time supporters Billy and Phyllis Gibson, The Faber Cup is an award that recognizes outstanding individuals or groups, including twirlers, teachers, judges, organizations, families, supporters, and volunteers who have made a significant and lasting contribution to the enhancement and growth of D.M.A. and to the art of baton twirling. Members of D.M.A. submit nominations for consideration, and a recipient is selected by The Faber Cup Board of Directors each year prior to D.M.A. Nationals.

The Faber Cup was presented during the 2023 Opening Ceremonies to Angie Bedford from North Carolina. The Faber Cup Board of Directors is honored to award The Faber Cup to Angie for all that she does and is willing to do for DMA and baton twirling.
