Northrop Grumman has awarded more than $50,000 in scholarships to the winning teams in the CyberPatriot VIII National Finals.
The Air Force Association and Northrop recognized the winners of the competition’s open, all-service and middle school divisions during an awards banquet Wednesday in Maryland, the company said Thursday.
First-place winners each received $2,000, second-place winners each received $1,500 and third-place winners each received $1,000.
The finals featured 28 high school and middle school teams that competed in the full-day competition Tuesday, where they worked to defend virtual networks and mobile devices against a professional “aggressor” team, Northrop said.
The full list of winners can be found on the company’s website.
Northrop Grumman Foundation is a six-time presenting sponsor of the event, which is part of AFA’s National Youth Cyber Education program.
