Deadline Approaching for CyberPatriot III Sign-Up

The Oct. 8 registration deadline is quickly approaching for the nation’s high schools to square off in a cyber-defense competition in hopes of snagging scholarships.

With more than 300 total teams in 45 states already organizing teams, word is getting out to high school educators across the country about CyberPatriot III. Teams have registered from public, private, parochial, and home schools in many states in the competition’s open division.

“Some educators haven’t heard about this great opportunity for their students, so we’re trying to get the word out in time to allow teams to compete this academic year in our unique online nationwide competition,” said Bernie Skoch, CyberPatriot commissioner. “To join, a high-school teacher signs up and identifies five bright students for a fun, hands-on learning opportunity. The top teams win a trip to Washington, D.C. and opportunities for scholarships.  I’d urge any high-school educator to take a look at www.uscyberpatriot.org.”

CyberPatriot is presented by Northrop Grumman and produced by the Air Force Association. This year, hundreds of teams across the nation will learn to defend a computer network from real-life computer threat scenarios. The teams will compete online, using special software and programs provided by CyberPatriot to solve vulnerabilities in their network. The top teams then compete again in a series of online rounds to determine finalists for an all-expenses-paid trip to the nation’s capital.
