Brief Narrative: The CyberPatriot Initiative proposal is to plan and implement an innovative program to meet the critical need for developing cyber-skills and awareness for K-12 students as a direct response to increased employment and wages earned for students in this high demand field. Through CyberPatriot competitions –and the collaborative learning that comes with them -- students will be exposed to the basics of cybersecurity and its applications.
