Senator Mark Warner hosted his third annual Virginia Service Academy Day at the Paramount Theatre on the downtown mall.

Representatives from the five service academies and different ROTC programs say the process is very competitive.

"It's important for these students to understand how competitive that is," said Claire Dame of the Randolph-Macon Academy. "They also need to understand what they need to do through high school so that they have a chance of getting the nomination and the appointment."  

Each member of Congress can nominate up to five people per academy. Most of the academies require a Congressional nomination to be accepted.
