DERRY — Five members of Pinkerton Academy's Air Force Junior ROTC program recently competed in the College Options Foundation AFJRotc Academic Bowl and advanced to the next level.

The Bowl is a national competition among nearly 900 AFJROTC units with only about 40% of the top unites advancing to Level II testing.

Testing included general JROTC knowledge, SAT/ACT-type vocabulary, grammar, reading comprehension, math, science questions and current events.

Benefits for students competing include improving testing skills, increased interest in college admissions, a demonstration of academic strength of the JROTC program, and earning an opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. this summer for future competition and the national championship if the team advances.
