Muncie Central JROTC Team to Compete in

National Academic Bowl Championship in Washington, DC


Muncie, IN - After advancing through two phases of online competition, the Muncie Central’s JROTC academic team composed of Kristian Jefferis, Cody Gilliland, Julia Ballard, and Cody Bryant will compete in person at the final Championship event of The 2015 Marine Corps JROTC Academic Bowl Championship in Washington D.C., on the campus of The Catholic University of America, June 26-30, 2015.

During the initial two rounds of competitive online play, the Muncie Central JROTC team earned top scores to win a place in the National Academic Bowl competition. The team is one of only four Marine Corps JROTC Academic Bowl Teams in the nation to advance to the finals.

The 2014-2015 Marine Corps JROTC Academic Finalist Teams are:

La Cueva High School, Albuquerque NM
             Muncie Central High School, Muncie IN
             R-S Central High School, Rutherfordton NC
             University City High School, San Diego CA

In the two fast-paced preliminary rounds, students were tested on their knowledge of JROTC curriculum, English, Math and Science. One of the main goals of the JROTC Academic Bowl is to prepare students for state exit/graduation exams as well as college entrance exams, such as the SAT and ACT.  

The winner of the Marine Corps JROTC Academic Championship will compete against the winners of the Army, Navy and Air Force JROTC Academic Bowls in the JROTC Joint Service Academic Bowl Championship.

The JROTC Leadership and Academic Bowl (JLAB) is a nationally recognized academic competition created exclusively for JROTC students. By participating, cadets learn the values of citizenship, academic competition, and college opportunity. The competition creates tremendous opportunities for JROTC cadets by allowing them to demonstrate leadership and academic abilities.

This event is conducted by College Options Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the academic development of high school students and assisting them in their preparation for higher education.  Using academic competitions, college exam study guides, college admissions tutorials and personalized counseling, College Options Foundation has assisted the nation’s JROTC cadets worldwide for over a decade.
