Start your cybersecurity journey!

Date Posted: Tuesday, November 24, 2020

The CyberStart America is a free program and is now open and ends in March 2021. All Virginia students in grades 9-12 are invited to participate. The CyberStart Game is open to all high school students, and anyone who reaches level five will qualify for the national competition to compete for scholarships. To encourage participation of young women and JROTC cadets, specific communities have been established for those groups, offering additional support and community-specific awards within the overall scholarship competition.

The National Cyber Scholarship Foundation anticipates awarding $2 million in scholarships for use at any accredited college to 600 high-scoring students across the nation who participate in the competition in 2021.
