That's correct. The opening ceremony is supposed to be fun and somewhat casual. Wear silly hats, dress up like your school's mascot, or something stereotypical of your state, etc etc. The awards ceremony is formal (e.g. suits, jackets, dresses, etc).

What I said only applies to Nationals. I've never been to a regional or state tournament that had formal attire for the awards ceremony.
