Baltimore, Md. - The Air Force Association's (AFA) CyberPatriot Program announced last week the winners of its CyberPatriot IX National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. It also recognized one competitor in particular – high school senior Leon Gaulin – who is just the fifth recipient of the Cyber All American Award. The Cyber All American designation is awarded to students who have played a role in advancing their teams to the CyberPatriot National Finals Competition in each of their high school years. In any given season fewer than one percent of CyberPatriot teams advance to the finals.  For any student to be part of a team that does so for each of his or her high school years is particularly rare. With a successful CyberPatriot career accomplished, Leon plans to attend Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester, Mass., to pursue an Engineering associate's degree, then through an articulation agreement transfer to Worcester Polytechnic Institute to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering. “Leon has been such an inspirational member of our school's CyberPatriot team and program,” said Coach, First Sergeant Paul Jornet, US Marine Corps, (Ret). “Throughout his four high school years Leon has helped to train so many students in the fundamentals of safe and ethical cyber behavior.  Leon has assisted with the instruction of two cyber summer camps for middle school students and three cyber STEM camps for high school students. Commitment to community is a trademark of Leon's, as he currently serves our school as the Student Representative to the School Committee.” The CyberPatriot IX competition season began in October 2016 with more than 4,400 teams registered. After four months of rigorous online challenges, the top teams met in Baltimore, Md., to compete for the title of National Champion. Leon and his team took home third place honors in the All Service Division. CyberPatriot, an education initiative established by the Air Force Association and presented by the Northrop Grumman Foundation, is a one-of-a-kind cyber defense competition designed to inspire students toward futures in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Other program sponsors include Cyber Diamond sponsors AT&T Federal and the AT&T Foundation, Cisco, Microsoft, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the Office of the Secretary of Defense; Cyber Gold sponsors Facebook, Riverside Research, Splunk, and Symantec; and Cyber Silver sponsors Air Force Reserve, Air Force STEM, American Military University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Leidos, and University of Maryland University College.

HONOLULU, HI., May 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Air Force Association’s (AFA) CyberPatriot program announced today that they will be hosting 105 CyberCamps this summer in over 160 locations around the United States, with over 15 camps being held in Hawaii. The Hawaii CyberCamps have partnered with Cyber Hui, a community of cybersecurity professionals dedicated to sharing their skills with Hawaii’s youth. Cyber Hui, along with the State of Hawaii Department of Education and the University of Hawaii, provide support and mentorship for the 2017 CyberCamps and CyberPatriot X teams throughout the state. "The Hawaii cybersecurity community is coming together and making a huge impact with our youth,” said Reynold Hioki, CyberPatriot Mentor and Hawaii State Cybersecurity Coordinator. “Jake Ross and Cyber Hui are key to Hawaii's recent successes and ongoing initiatives. Of course, a lot of this wouldn't be possible without the efforts of Gen Skoch and AFA's CyberPatriot/CyberCamp programs." Cyber Hui has supported the upcoming CyberCamps by connecting students participating in the program with instructors, mentors and volunteers on all four major islands. “Witnessing the passion and enthusiasm that these kids have gives me hope that the talent we are growing will make great contributions to the innovation and national security of the United States of America,” said Jake Ross, Cyber Hui President. CyberCamps give students the opportunity to learn about topics in STEM regardless of their previous knowledge or education in cybersecurity. “The CyberPatriot program has opened doors for our students that they did not even know existed: college majors, scholarships, career opportunities, and a chance to make an important and positive difference in the world,” said Debbie Kula, Math Department Head at Sacred Hearts Academy. CyberPatriot, the nation's largest and fastest growing youth cyber education program, is AFA's flagship science, technology, engineering and mathematics program dedicated to strengthening cyber skills among American youth. The program features the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition for high school and middle school students, AFA CyberCamps, and an Elementary School Cyber Education Initiative.

The Air Force Association (AFA) today announced that CyberPatriot, AFA’s premier STEM education initiative, has surpassed 1,000 registered teams for the 2017-2018 CyberPatriot X National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. This milestone comes  just 37 days after the launch of registration, beating the previous record by 29 days. Registration opened on April 1, 2017 for prospective coaches and mentors to sign up teams for the upcoming competition, which will begin in October. To date, teams from 48 states are already represented in the competition field, missing only Alaska and North Dakota. Last year, CyberPatriot IX broke all previous registration records after more than 4,400 teams signed up to compete from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Hungary, Australia, Canada, and DoD Dependent Schools in Europe and the Pacific. “The rate of growth that this program has seen from year to year is remarkable,” said CyberPatriot National Commissioner, Bernie Skoch. “We are excited to see new and returning  teams joining the competition and we hope the break even more records this competition season. CyberPatriot X is already off to a great start.” CyberPatriot aims to inspire high school and middle school students to pursue careers in cybersecurity and other STEM disciplines critical to our nation's future. The program’s unique structure provides students hands-on learning about technology, emphasizing teamwork and leadership, and exercising critical-thinking skills.  The Air Force Association also provides its Elementary School Cyber Education Initiative and annual AFA CyberCamps through the CyberPatriot program. A CyberPatriot team consists of a coach and two to six students enrolled in the same middle school, high school, or other approved youth or educational organization. CyberPatriot provides fundamental training materials and encourages coaches to work with technical mentors who register on the CyberPatriot website to volunteer to help train teams for competition. Neither coaches nor competitors need any special technical background, and the competition's structure is designed to keep students of all skill levels engaged throughout the season. During the competition's preliminary rounds, teams compete online from their home locations on software that simulates real network environments IT professionals face. CyberPatriot places cybersecurity vulnerabilities in secure simulated networks, and competitors gain points by finding and fixing them. The competition has a tournament-style tiered structure, and teams advance based on scores from each round until the top 28 teams are identified. Those top qualifying teams then receive all-expenses-paid trips to the CyberPatriot National Finals Competition held in Baltimore, Md., each spring. All high schools, middle schools, approved home school programs, JROTC units of all Services, US Naval Sea Cadet Corps squadrons, Civil Air Patrol squadrons, scouting units, Boys and Girls clubs, 4H clubs, and other approved youth organizations are invited to participate. Supporters of CyberPatriot include Northrop Grumman Foundation, CyberPatriot's Presenting Sponsor, as well as Cyber Diamond sponsors AT&T and the AT&T Foundation, Cisco, Microsoft, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the Office of the Secretary of Defense; Cyber Gold sponsors Facebook, Riverside Research, Splunk, and Symantec; and Cyber Silver sponsors Air Force STEM, Air Force Reserve, American Military University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Leidos, and University of Maryland University College.
