The State Explorer Challenge is a competition designed to be very demanding on the physical and mental capabilities of each Explorer. Events will be designed to test the strengths and limitations of a person's intelligence, personality, demeanor, and physical abilities, as well as dedication and conviction to the Explorer Program. Explorers will be allowed to test their skills in real-life situations including, but not limited to, Traffic Stops and Building Searches, just to name a few. These events will be held both in daylight and nighttime scenarios. The competition will test the Explorers' physical abilities and teamwork through obstacle courses and a tug of war. Mental abilities will also be tested through a variety of events including a Law Enforcement Entry Level Written Exam.
