Battle of the Badges is open to all students interested in entering the field of public service.

Battle of the Badges

This summer, Anna Maria College is hosting the third annual Battle of the Badges, an exciting program designed for high school students who are interested in exploring the fields of criminal justice, fire science, or emergency management. This is a FREE three day program designed to balance education and fun, Battle of the Badges will provide program participants with hands-on learning and demonstrations from expert instructors from federal, state, and community organizations. Housing (air conditioned) and meals are provided. The program included outstanding Public Safety professionals from organizations at the Federal, State and local areas working as professionals regionally and nationally.

Why should you attend? This educational program provides you with the opportunity to experience aspects of these important career fields from professionals who are at work on the front lines, handling emergencies, solving cases, arson investigations, putting out fires, and protecting communities across the state. In addition to all the hands-on learning, you’ll have plenty of time to get to know other students while you compete in fun, recreational athletic events like the annual Red and Blue Dodgeball Tournament or during the evening’s campfire.

Learn from the best while having a great time on Anna Maria’s beautiful campus.


The coveted Battle of the Badges t-shirt, meals and snacks are included along with overnight accommodations in one of our residence halls.
