Cyber Defense

September 4, 2010

AFA Members, Congressional Staff Members, Civic Leaders, DOCA members, two weeks ago, I wrote you about AFA’s National High School Cyber Defense Competition ( [think Spelling Bee … but for high schoolers … and in the cyber domain]. This is an exciting new undertaking for AFA and is moving very fast. We now have 325 teams from 46 states registered and are adding more every day. [We are missing only Montana, Wyoming, Iowa, and Connecticut.] We also have a team registered in Japan !!

However, we still need your help in getting high schools interested in the competition.

Many have asked us: Which of the high schools near me are registered? We created a web link on the web site where you can find this data: We update the link every evening, M-F. Is there a school in your area not on the list? Visit and encourage them to sign up! All the facts and great recruiting tips are on the web site: at the “How AFA Chapters Can Help” link.

Additionally we have a competition video which shows the excitement in this adventure. You can find it at:

Are you coming to the Air & Space Conference later this month? Be sure to stop by the CyberPatriot exhibit area and watch exciting demos! They will be held Monday, 13 Sep, from 1130-1430; Tuesday, 14 Sep, from 1000-1200 and from 1400-1600; and Wednesday, 15 Sep, from 1000-1200 and from 1400-1600.

For your Consideration.
