For the second year in a row, North Carolina is participating in the Girls Go CyberStart program, a series of cyber challenges open to high school girls. Students will be able to compete for the chance to win scholarships and other prizes. To participate in the free competition, North Carolina girls enrolled in grades 9-12 need to register before March 20 at Girls Go CyberStart.

Participating students and their teachers do not need previous knowledge or experience in information technology or cybersecurity to participate. All that is required is a computer and an Internet connection. The program is free for schools and students.

Participants use the CyberStart Game, an online series of challenges where they work to solve cybersecurity puzzles and explore cryptography and digital forensics. To see the types of challenges students will face in the games, please visit https://go.joincyberstart.com/.

At least 10 North Carolina high school girls who participate will each get $500 scholarships to help them pay for college. Students will also have the opportunity to win cash prizes for themselves and their schools. The college program is a pipeline to $2.5 million in scholarships for advanced cybersecurity education as well as internships and jobs in the field.
