Question First Drum Contest?

Does anyone know when the first drum contest was held? Or about what era they started?

Can't speak for anything up North but there was a singing contest at the Anadarko Indian Fair about 1945. The winners were three Ponca men, Francis Eagle,Sylvester Warrior and Harry Buffalohead. The prize was $5.00. Don Whistler, the Sac & Fox host of the old Indians for Indians radio program broadcast this live from the Fair. $5.00 was also the prize for dance competition both at the Fair and at the Ed Mack Powwow outside Shawnee, OK.
