North Stafford AFJROTC CyberPatriot Team Advances to Semifinals
Posted: February 24, 2018
A team of AFJROTC cadets from North Stafford High School in Stafford, Virginia competed in the Air Force Association National Youth Cyber Defense Competition Semifinals of CyberPatriot on Feburary 17, 2018. North Stafford started the competition last December with three teams, but Team 10-5597, consisting of Noah Abernathy, Brittany Brookover, Seth Chamberlin, Xavier Gavino-Collins, Leah Kheir, and led by Kristin Sagadraca, was the only team advancing to the state semifinal.
Established by AFA in 2009, the CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Education Program is designed to excite, educate, and motivate students toward careers in cybersecurity and other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future.
CyberPatriot’s core program – the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition – challenges teams of students across the United States, Canada, and from DoDD schools abroad, to find and resolve cybersecurity vulnerabilities in simulated environments. Top teams from the preliminary online rounds earn all-expenses-paid trips to Baltimore, MD for the in-person National Finals Competition where students compete for national recognition and scholarships.
At this high school level, the CyberPatriot field is divided into two divisions: The Open Division for public, private, and home school teams, the All Service Division for JROTC, Civil Air Patrol, and Naval Sea Cadet Corps teams. Within these divisions are three skills levels: Platinum, Gold, and Silver.
In all, 5,584 teams registered to compete in CyberPatriot X. Of these teams, over 400 teams competed as part of the All Service Division Gold tier. North Stafford’s Cyber Team 10-5597 is among the 115 teams advancing to the competition’s state round.
Led by Coach Col. Catherine Bacon, the team of AFJROTC cadets excelled in the CyberPatriot X All Service Division qualification rounds, demonstrating teamwork, critical thinking skills, and technical knowledge key to a successful career in cybersecurity. The team’s performance earned them a spot in the Semifinal Round held earlier this month; final results are still pending.
“Our teams started out with limited knowledge but extraordinary enthusiasm, and they learned and grew more skillful at each level of competition,” said Col Bacon. “They definitely impressed me with their ability to concentrate and maintain a competitive focus during the five-hour long competitions. Whatever the results, the cadets are jazzed, and are already planning for next year’s competition.”
Following the Semifinals, the top 13 All Service Division teams will advance to the CyberPatriot X National Finals Competition in Baltimore, MD.
