    Congratulations to the 2020-2021 DMS CyberPatriot Team members!  

    Please see the CyberPatriot Training Materials tab on the left for CyberPatriot Study Guides and Resources to prepare for competition.

    • State Round Competition- January 22, 2021

     CyberPatriot, the National Youth Cyber Education Program, was created by the Air Force Association (AFA) to inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future. ​

    At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services.  

    Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Baltimore, MD for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money.

    Thank you for your interest in CyberPatriot at DMS!

    The CyberPatriot Club at DMS is sponsored by Mrs. Collins.
