Twenty-four JROTC programs from across the District, with over 1,000 cadets, took part in the Broward County Drill Meet.  The competition was hosted by Fort Lauderdale High School.

Western High School, Everglades High School, Plantation High School and Monarch High School rounded out the top five finishers, respectively. Select teams are now eligible to compete in state and national level drill competitions.
