West Forsyth High School’s JROTC team earned top scores out of the 1,371 Army JROTC leadership teams that competed from around the world. The team is one of only 40 Army JROTC Leadership Bowl teams in the nation to advance to the final competition, which includes
an all-expense paid trip to the championship event in Washington, D.C.
During the two fast-paced preliminary rounds and the final competitions, cadets are tested on their knowledge of great leaders, leadership practices and skills, Army JROTC curriculum, as well as current events, citizenship and financial literacy.
The financial literacy videos are sponsored by the USAA Educational Foundation and provided to all cadets. Questions from the videos were included in Levels I and II of the online competition.

By participating, cadets learn the values of citizenship, leadership competition and college opportunity.
The competition creates tremendous opportunities for JROTC cadets by allowing them to demonstrate leadership and academic abilities.
