When can I sign up for the next FIT Challenge?

I would like to sign up for the next FIT Challenge but don't know when that is. Can you help me out? Connie in Sandusky

Firelands in Training, or FIT, editor Brandi Barhite provided the following answer:

The next group of contestants will be announced Tuesday. You can't apply for this round anymore. In June, I will accept applications again.

To be considered as a candidate, write a 300-word essay and include a photo of yourself.
