"The United States is experiencing a growing shortage of professionals interested in science, technology, engineering and math, threatening our economic future and national security," said Sandra Evers-Manly, vice president, Corporate Responsibility and president of the Northrop Grumman Foundation. "Programs like CyberPatriot, which are increasing the pool of young people interested in STEM, are critical to our international competitiveness and our ability to defend ourselves from cyber threats."

The final competition brought 28 teams from around the country together to compete in two different divisions. The All Service Division included students from the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, Civil Air Patrol, and the Naval Sea Cadet Corps programs. The Open Division was made up of public, private and home-schooled high school teams. This year, the CyberPatriot competition included two additional teams from Manitoba province, Canada, that competed parallel to the American teams as international exhibition teams.

Following the keynote address delivered by Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley, Air Force Brig. Gen. Burke E. "Ed" Wilson, Deputy Commander, Air Forces Cyber, Fort Meade, Md., announced the winning teams in the All Service Division and Kathy Warden, corporate vice president and president, Northrop Grumman Information Systems, announced the winning teams in the Open Division.

The CyberPatriot V National Finals Competition was held outside Washington, D.C., on March 15. The AFA's CyberPatriot program is the largest high school cyber defense competition and is designed to excite, educate and motivate students toward careers in cybersecurity. Last week, the Northrop Grumman Foundation announced that it will continue as presenting sponsor of CyberPatriot, with a $4.5 million, three-year grant to AFA.
