                                   What is JLAB?

Junior Leadership Academic Bowl (JLAB) is a team dedicated to studying scholarly academics and the skills that surround leadership. We motivate members of the team to attempt the highest GPA possible in an effort to gain knowledge and prepare for testing. JLAB consists of two sub-teams, Academic and Leadership (more information may be found below). The JLAB competition consists of three major levels of testing, levels I, II, and III.

Level I is a nationwide competition that takes place at the JROTC program’s host school. A score threshold, unknown to any school, is set. Any school that reaches the score with any of the two teams advances to Level II.

Level II consists of any school team that met the aforementioned score threshold. This competition decides which of the schools participating will move on too the national competition in Washington, D.C.

Level III (National Symposium) is the national competition, and is conducted in Washington, D.C. It includes an all expense paid trip to D.C. provided by the US Department of Defense. This is the most difficult of every level.

Incentives:

Any team winning at the National Symposium will earn up to $25,000 in gift cards and scholarships. Any team advancing past Level II will earn a specific medal designated by the US Army Cadet Command.

Practices include study sessions, practice tests, and quizzes related to each individual team. Practice dates will be announced at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year.
