High School Cyber Challenge

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder invited teachers and administrators from across the state to register their high school students with skills in computer science, information technology and cybersecurity for the Michigan High School Cyber Challenge. The Challenge involved two rounds, the first held online the week of Sept. 26-30, 2016, and the second taking place at the North American International Cyber Summit on October 17, 2016, at Cobo Center in Detroit. During the first round, high school teams, each comprising three students, completed challenges designed to test their knowledge of IT and cybersecurity. The top 10 teams advanced to the second round, where teams competed in a virtual exercise designed to test their skills with an intensive, timed series of cybersecurity challenges. The top three teams from round two received awards from Gov. Snyder during lunch at the North American International Cyber Summit.
