Northrop Grumman Foundation Congratulates Top 28 CyberPatriot Teams Advancing To National Finals In Washington, D.C.

FALLS CHURCH, Va., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Northrop Grumman Foundation, presenting sponsor for CyberPatriot VI, is proud to congratulate the 26 high school teams - and for the first time, two middle school teams - who have successfully battled through three competitive online rounds to advance to the national finals in Washington, D.C., March 28.

CyberPatriot, established by the Air Force Association, is the National Youth Cyber Education Program created to inspire students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future. This season marks the addition of middle-school students, who are competing in a newly established Middle School division

This year's finalists are from Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and the Manitoba province of Canada. For a complete list of finalists, go to:  http://www.uscyberpatriot.org/CP5/CPVI%20Documents/Finalists.pdf

"We congratulate every team that competed this year and are thrilled to see these 28 teams, especially our new middle school students, advance to the finals," said Sandra Evers-Manly, president of the Northrop Grumman Foundation and vice president of Northrop Grumman Global Corporate Responsibility. "Since we first signed on as presenting sponsor, CyberPatriot participation has grown by more than 130 percent, a statistic that clearly demonstrates how STEM competitions, like CyberPatriot, provide an exciting pathway for students to follow in preparation for a career in this field."

In its fourth year as presenting sponsor, the Northrop Grumman Foundation and Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) continue to devote time, talent and resources to support this much-needed initiative aimed at building a qualified cyber workforce of tomorrow. In March 2013, the foundation extended its commitment through CyberPatriot VIII, which funded expansion of the program to middle schools and internationally as well as the launch of a cyber summer camp initiative this year.

In addition to the foundation's financial support, Northrop Grumman awards annual scholarship funds to the winning teams and contributes employee volunteers, who assist in coaching and mentoring students throughout the year. The company also provides internships to a number of CyberPatriot competitors, as do other industry and government organizations.
