On Nov. 1, the Los Alamos High School Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) unit hosted the Micah Jay Andersen Shoulder to Shoulder and Brain Brawl Competition. This event was the first of its kind in Area 9, which includes seven states and 60 schools.
The Los Alamos unit named the competition after a former cadet and LAHS graduate who was injured in Afghanistan by an IED and is now recovering in San Antonio, Texas.
The competition was in the ROTC building at the high school and had six competing schools, including West Mesa High, Santa Fe High, Belen High, Montrose High, Cleveland Academy and Rio Rancho High.
Cadets were asked questions of military history, chain of command, and other military related topics.
During the competition, a new buzzer system, which used wireless buttons that ring in everyone who responded in order and keeps track of the score.
The Los Alamos cadets helped with the parking, campus tours, guiding schools around, and planning the event. In the end, the overall winner was Rio Rancho High School.
