What is the device placed on the flute soloist at state marching contest today? Is it something for amplification?

As others have said they're the Win-D-Fenders. We have them for all of our flutes for outside. They're one of the greatest inventions I think of all time for flutes with marching band. They block the wind and let you hear yourself better. For the most part they've lasted two seasons with usage and held up well. We had one break yesterday at the dome... fun! First one to break though through that.
(No wind, but they were used to playing with them and they could still hear themselves better on the field that way)
No, it was something different. It was a light grey plastic looking shield of sorts. She had a lapel mic on the end of her flute and another member was holding a handheld mic nearby. I was thinking it was a shield to keep the airstream from hitting the handheld mic?
I didn't see it, but as described you'd be referring to the Win-D-Fender, which is a device to help prevent wind from affecting the flute player's performance. It probably would work for the mic as you described.
