(KSL News) A few teenagers were taking some pretty tough orders this morning, but it's OK, because it was to determine who's the best. The teens are cadets with Utah's Civil Air Patrol.

They were getting judged on several skills, such as color guard, flag folding and written exams.

Whoever does the best gets to represent Utah in a five-state regional competition.

Cadet Colonel Robert Hawk said, "The biggest thing I get out of it is confidence for myself. I'm out, I'm doing things that kids my age don't even get to play with."

Most of these cadets go on to join the military.
