Byrd students sought for international competition

Petr Zlatohlávek, Executive Director of the NATO Information Center in Prague, (far right) views the “Hall of Fame” at Byrd High School in Shreveport, La., Nov. 8, 2013. Zlatohlávek was part of a delegation from the Czech Republic at the school to discuss the possibilities of Byrd students’ future involvement in the Aliante international competition. The international student competition is for two-member teams of 15 to 19-year-old students. Its purpose is to raise the students’ awareness (knowledge) about history, geography, politics, international affairs and above all security issues and North Atlantic Alliance. The delegation also toured the STARBASE Louisiana complex on Barksdale to learn about ways to enhance public and defense diplomacy projects that involve civil-military cooperation. The STARBASE program showcases the cooperation between the civilian and military communities to develop education projects for local children. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Jeff Walston)
