On Saturday, February 22nd, the Howe Military Academy CyberPatriot Team competed in the State Recognition Round of CyberPatriot VI. CyberPatriot is the premier national high school cyber defense competition created by the Air Force Association to inspire high school students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future. Approximately 1,500 teams competed in the round from all over the United States competing for the top spot in each respective state that they represented. I am pleased to announce that the Howe Military Academy CyberPatriot Team placed 1st in the State of Indiana in the All-Service Division of the State Recognition Round and will be moving on to compete in the Regional Recognition Round this weekend for a chance to take top honors in the Midwest Region. We will be competing against six other teams from Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. This year’s team consists of Cadets Piane, Roberts, Sienkiewicz, and Slabaugh. Please congratulate them on a job well done in the State Round and wish them luck this weekend in the Regional Round.
