Embry-Riddle to host high schools in ROTC field meet
Teams from 12 high school Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps units in Florida will compete Saturday, Dec. 1, at the 8th annual Field Meet hosted by the Naval ROTC unit at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach.
The cadets will compete for unit and school pride, state Junior ROTC recognition and Embry-Riddle scholarships.
Each school will take part in a series of physical, academic, and team-building exercises in which they will be judged and ranked as both units and individuals. Events are personnel inspection; basic armed and unarmed; exhibition armed and unarmed (spinning rifles, etc.); color guard competition (marching with flags); individual drill (marching); 100-yard and 200-yard relays and push-up and curl-up competitions.
This year's meet will attract more than 800 high school students to campus, making it one of the largest undertakings for the Embry-Riddle NROTC unit to date.
Each cadet in the winning unit will receive a $5,000 annual renewable scholarship to Embry-Riddle's residential campuses in Daytona Beach or Prescott, Ariz.
The daylong event begins at the campus's track facility at 7:30 a.m. and concludes with an awards ceremony at 4 p.m. The top three Navy Junior ROTC units will receive an invitation to the state meet later this year.
For more information, call (386) 323-8992 or email@example.com.
