The US Cyber Challenge is looking for 10,000 young Americans with the skills to fill the ranks of cyber security practitioners, researchers, and warriors. Some will become the top guns in cyber security. The program will nurture and develop their skills, give them access to advanced education and exercises, and where appropriate, enable them to be recognized by colleges and employers where their skills can be of the greatest value to the nation.

There are three challenges to choose from: CyberPatriot high school competition conducted by the Air Force Association; the DC3 Digital Forensics Challenge conducted by the US Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center; and the NetWars vulnerability identification competition conducted by the SANS Institute.
