The students will be selected from the following Louisiana middle and high schools: Amite High School, Denham Springs Freshman and Upperclassman High Schools, Donaldsonville High School, East Feliciana High School, Franklinton High School, Independence High School, Kenilworth Middle Science and Technology Charter School, Livingston High School, Livonia High School, Plaquemine Senior High School, Port Allen High School, Scotlandville High School, St. Helena High School, West Feliciana High School, White Castle High School and Woodlawn High School.
