VERNON On March 13, the Vernon High School JROTC hosted and competed in the Quiz Bowl competition with Holmes County High School and Chipley High School.

Vernon, Chipley, and Holmes County were quizzed on six categories; Citizenship and American History, Leadership Theory and Application, Wellness, Fitness and First Aid, Foundations for Success, Geography and Earth Science, and Character and Leadership Development.

All six categories pertain to skills and knowledge they learned in the classroom.

Chipley took first, Vernon took second, and Holmes County took third. We thank all the teams for their hard work.
