Deadline is 2/17/16
Congratulations to five King’s Fork High School students who have been selected to participate in the 2016 Model NATO Challenge. Four of the students are from the school’s IB program. Students from all over the Hampton Roads area competed for the 28 spots.
As part of the application process, students wrote a 600-750 word essay demonstrating their knowledge of NATO, its members, and their stance on current issues. They will be working closely with mentors from NATO to prepare for the NATO challenge to take place at Virginia Wesleyan College on March 23, 2016.
During the challenge those students who have demonstrated excellence in execution of their assigned responsibilities could potentially win scholarship money for the school of their choice. The top finalist will receive an all expense paid trip to the International Student Leadership Conference hosted by Operation Smile in California.
