WHAT

CyberPatriot’s National Youth Cyber Defense Competition challenges teams of high school and middle school students to find and fix cybersecurity vulnerabilities in virtual operating systems.

Top teams advance through the online round of competition, and the best of the best advance to the in-person National Finals Competition.
