"With a large and competitive field of teams, it's impressive to make it to the National Finals Competition in one season," said Rachel Zimmerman, Senior Manager for Program Administration for CyberPatriot. "Doing it for four consecutive years is truly remarkable."
Frank Zaborowski, Senior Director of CyberPatriot Operations remarked, "The skills, dedication, and time involved to achieve Cyber All American status is on par with what it takes to be an All American in high school sports. A major difference is that a Cyber All American goes up against industry professionals in their championship event."
The CyberPatriot VIII National Finals Competition will be hosted in Baltimore April 10-14. Teams of high school and middle school students will travel all-expenses-paid to compete for the title of National Champion, scholarships, and other recognition. The twelve Open Division, thirteen All Service Division and three Middle School Division National Finalist teams advanced through extremely competitive online qualifying rounds to earn the distinction of being National Finalists. They represent schools and youth organizations from California, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, Texas, and Manitoba, Canada.
