Two WV Students Named as Scholars in National Cyber Scholarship Competition
The National Cyber Scholarship Competition(NCSC) is a rigorous 48-hour online cybersecurity competition sponsored by The National Cyber Scholarship Foundation (NCSF). Qualifiers competed against over 5000 other high school students in challenges such as solving computer security problems and capturing and defending computer systems.
Qualifying for the competition is an excellent achievement within itself. In total, 50,000 students nationwide sought to qualify for the NCSC, with just 10% meeting the requirements!
Congratulations to all of our students who qualified for the National Cyber Scholarship Competition and won their badges! We’re so proud of their achievements and for representing Waubonsie Valley.
In particular, we would love to celebrate the achievements of the following two students:
Jacob Lamoso, a senior, and Sabrina Mei, a junior, have been named Scholars in the National Cyber Scholarship Competition. In recognition of this achievement, they have earned a college scholarship as well as an invitation to participate in the Cyber Foundations Academy –a multi-week online program based on the nationally recognized SANS Foundations training course and certification –valued at more than $3,000.
We’re so excited to hear about our students experience at the Cyber Foundations Academy and where their cybersecurity skills take them next!
