Girls Go CyberStart has closed, but before we take a summer break, we’ve got some amazing numbers and some great news to share!
First, the great news:
We have awarded 265 junior and senior girls $500 college scholarships for their outstanding performance in CyberStart Game! We know every little bit helps when tackling the expense of college — and wasn’t it more fun to earn that scholarship by solving cybersecurity challenges instead of writing an essay?
Click here to see a list of the scholarship winners in each state. Kudos to these girls and a big thank you to their teachers and schools for supporting them in Girls Go CyberStart!
