The Lovejoy High School Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps’ academic team competed against more than 200 teams from around the nation, to advance to Level II of the AFJROTC Academic Bowl.
Carlleen Murray, senior aerospace science instructor, said 16 academic teams from Level II will earn an all-expenses-paid trip, and advance to the Air Force JROTC Academic Bowl Championship in Washington, D.C.
It will be held on the campus of George Mason University, June 22-26.
“This event is sponsored by Air Force JROTC, and conducted by [the] College Options Foundation,” said Murray. The winner of the Air Force championship will compete against the winners of the Army JROTC and Navy JROTC Academic Bowls in the newly established JROTC Tri-Service Academic Bowl Championship, said the instructor.
Murray said the main goal of the AFJROTC Academic Bowl is to prepare students for state exit/graduation exams, as well as the SAT and ACT, by testing their knowledge using SAT/ACT-type questions in the areas of JROTC curriculum, English, math and science.
