The National High School Cyber Defense Competition will be held from March 14-16 in the Washington, DC. Created in 2008 by the Air Force Association and nationally sponsored by Northrop Grumman, CyberPatriot is a unique competition geared toward teenagers that replicates real life cyber security situations faced by computer administrators. The competition provides students hands-on learning about cyber security while exciting, educating, and motivating them to be the nation’s next cyber defenders. Through three rounds of competition against 3,000 teams from high schools in all 50 states, the teams from Roybal Learning Complex, Franklin High School and two teams from North Hollywood High School are among the 12 teams nationwide to advance to the national finals.
“I have always known that LAUSD students are capable of competing amongst the best and brightest students in the nation,” Board President García said. “This competition has given our students the opportunity to present solutions to real world cyber security threats. I would like to congratulate all of the teams that participated and especially the four that will represent the LAUSD!”
“North Hollywood High School’s Cyber Patriots are an extremely talented group of students who have already proven their might by fielding two out of all twelve teams invited to the final round. Win or lose at the finals, these students have done all of LAUSD proud and we wish them the best of luck in Washington, DC.” –Board Member Tamar Galatzan
“I am very proud of our LAUSD Cyber Patriots and of Franklin High School for fielding such distinguished teams three years in a row. My best to them as they head to Washington, DC for the final showdown.” Board Member Bennett Kayser
The Beyond the Bell teams could not be more different. In the male dominated world of cyber security, the Beyond the Bell teams have 6 girls advancing to nationals. And with plentiful job opportunities in the world of cyber security, the fun they are having now could well lead to lucrative careers in the near future.
