Cybersecurity Competition

Several technology and innovation business councils in Virginia worked together to host a statewide “Capture the Flag” event on Saturday, Nov. 3 that introduced our girls to the concepts of cybersecurity in a fun and interactive game style. This program is meant to inspire a future generation to discover technology, get excited about STEM, and build code for real-world applications. 

 
DMMS girls competed locally at JMU, while also competing on a scoreboard against teams across the state.  Elizabeth Courtney, Penelope Loy, and Langleigh Hepner were all a part of the team that placed first at JMU and second in the state.  
 
DMMS also had a team that placed second at JMU, 4th in the state. Team members include: Harmony Cannon, Brieanna Wilson, Znyah Johnson.
