Coffey Squadron Cyber Patriot Team
Cyber Patriot is a national cybersecurity competition for middle and high school students in the United States. The competition is organized by the Air Force Association (AFA) and sponsored by several organizations, including Northrop Grumman Foundation, AT&T, and Microsoft.
The goal of the competition is to educate and motivate students to pursue careers in cybersecurity and other STEM fields, as well as to enhance their skills in cybersecurity and information technology. Teams of students compete in a series of online rounds where they are tasked with securing virtual networks and solving various cybersecurity challenges.
The competition is divided into three categories: Open Division (for all high school students), All-Service Division (for JROTC units), and Middle School Division. The final round of the competition is held in person in Baltimore, Maryland, where the top teams from each division compete for the national championship.
