Open to female high school students, the Girls Go CyberStart initiative encourages participants to explore their interests in cyber studies, learn core cybersecurity skills, and build confidence in problem solving. Students will also have the opportunity to win cash prizes for themselves and their schools, and at least 10 New Jersey high school girls will receive $500 scholarships to help pay for college. High school girls may pre-register for Girls Go CyberStart through March 20, when the games begin.

 

College students, both male and female, will also be able to play this year in a companion program called Cyber FastTrack, which allows students who excel in both the CyberStart Game and CyberStart Essentials (an online course that extends the learning of CyberStart Game) to be eligible to win $2.5 million in scholarships for advanced cybersecurity training, as well as receive introductions to employers for internships and jobs in the field. College students may pre-register for Cyber FastTrack beginning on February 18, and they will be able to start playing on April 5.
