CyberPatriot is the nation’s largest and fastest growing high school cyber security challenge. Its unique structure provides students hands-on learning while competing virtually against their peers and introduces many to the idea of cyber security as a profession. CyberPatriot helps to prepare college- and career-ready students with not just technical skills, but also invaluable experience in teamwork, leadership, and critical-thinking.
CyberPatriot also offers support and technical expertise from industry leaders, including CyberPatriot’s presenting sponsor the Northrop Grumman Foundation.
"We simply must attract more bright young students to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and we believe we have hit on a unique way of doing that through an exciting high school cyber competition,” said Bernie Skoch, CyberPatriot Commissioner. “CyberPatriot is a great opportunity, with its reach, to promote STEM education and careers to today's youth in America. It's an amazing competition that is accessible to all, especially the many disadvantaged youth, giving participants a new venue for academic and personal growth."
