This year, due to COVID-19, the competition takes place across the Indo-Pacific with competitors conducting events at their home station and participating in a virtual knowledge board presided by the USARPAC Command Sergeant Major. The noncommissioned officers and junior-enlisted competitors are evaluated in several categories such as general military knowledge, basic Soldier skills, and physical fitness.
