CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program created by the Air Force Association (AFA) to inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future. ActioNet supported the Moanalua High School Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corp (AF JROTC) and High School CyberPatriot teams by providing Cisco routers, laptops and printers, critical for their participation in the 2018-2019 CyberPatriot competition.
The CyberPatriot XI season began in October 2018 with 6387 high school and middle school teams from around the globe registering. There were 116 High School and Middle School teams from Hawaii participating in the All Service Division (JROTC) and the Open Division (regular High School teams.) ActioNet’s generous support of the 2018-2019 Air Force Association CyberPatriot program helped Moanalua High School Air Force JROTC team place third in the nation-wide All Service Division. ActioNet CEO Ashley Chen was presented with a Letter of Appreciation from the Moanalua HS JROTC CyberPatriot Team.
