2018 Cyber Cup Challenge

Nearly 25 students and 12 professional teams from throughout the Tennessee Valley and across the country competed for the Cyber Cup Challenge. Competition was fierce and awards distributed totaled $14,000. Two female students who were late entrants and said they joined “just for the experience” scored 300 points without preparing to compete. They outscored adult professionals and other college teams that competed. Both were also offered internships by Cyber Protex.

A special high school event at the Summit had 16 student participants. Three students who also competed in the Cyber Cup Challenge represented Grissom High School and took home the 2nd place prize. The students that attend the high school event are not cyber beginners – they are pursuing knowledge and skills outside of their classroom experience.
