It seems to me that you might be comparing apples to oranges here. You can make the same arguments for or against drum contests as you can for dance contests. A drum split is always nice. Especially when you are not expecting it.

One thing you should keep in mind in compensating a drum or singer is how much they contribute to the dance. If your committee asks a lot of a drum, like grand entry, flag,veteran, specials, etc, you should probably give them something for it. When our head singer splits up any money he always gives a little more to guys who lead songs.

Another thing to keep in mind is that however you split up money among drums, no one is getting rich singing. I know guys who want to get paid well every time they sing and it is a bit annoying. It's not like pow-wows are a lucrative and profitable business. At least for probably 90% of the dances out there.
