The Air Force Association has worked closely with the Northrop Grumman Foundation, the presenting sponsor, to see the expansion of the largest and fastest growing national high school cyber defense competition -- CyberPatriot! This morning, Northrop Grumman's Sandra Evers-Manly, Vice President, Corporate Responsibility, and Diane Miller, director of Operations for Cybersecurity and program director for the CyberPatriot, joined AFA's Vice Chairman of the Board for Aerospace Education, George Muellner, and CyberPatriot Commissioner, Bernie Skoch, to present the program with a $1 million grant. This marks their third year as presenting sponsor.

CyberPatriot, established in 2008, is AFA's flagship STEM program, exposing high school students to the world of cyber, introducing them to career opportunities and emphasizing teamwork and good citizenship. Together, AFA's CyberPatriot and Northrop Grumman are committed to supporting cybersecurity education, training and technology.

Congratulations to CyberPatriot!
