This weekend, more than 500 cadets will convene at the U.S. Military Academy in New York and compete in a cadet version of the Best Ranger competition.

West Point hosts the Sandhurst Military Skills Competition that features teams from all three service academies, ROTC detachments and more than 10 nations, according to an Army news release.

The cadets will face 11 military-skill events, including an obstacle course, a water crossing with a zodiac boat, rifle marksmanship, land navigation, trauma care and problem solving.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the competition.
