Subject: Cyber Challenge 2013: A STEM Capture the Flag Event

The MITRE Corporation<http://www.mitre.org/> and (ISC)2 Foundation<https://www.isc2.org/foundation/Default.aspx> recently announced the start of the 2013 Capture the Flag competition<http://mitrecyberacademy.org/stem/competitions> — a virtual event during which college and high school students compete against their peers in cyber security challenges, including cryptography, binary and web exploitation, and forensics.

The competition is Friday, July 26 – Saturday, July 27, 2013. Event registration<http://register.mitrestemctf.org/> is under way until Thursday, June 27, and open to U.S. undergraduate and high school students. There is no cost to participate. A virtual kickoff meeting will take place on Friday, June 28. During the meeting, participants will learn more about the competition, review rules, and discuss virtual training and practice sessions that teams can use to prepare for the competition.

Members of the winning team will each receive an (ISC)2 Foundation-sponsored $1,000 college scholarship, a voucher to take the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) exam, and priority consideration for MITRE’s Cyber Internship Program<http://www.mitre.org/work/cybersecurity/training.html>.

Last year’s Capture the Flag competition attracted more than 200 students from across the country. We hope your students will be inspired to join this year’s event!
