Wilmington School Wins 7th Straight State Title In National Cybersecurity Competition

Padua Academy is proud to announce their students have won the 7th straight state title in the Air Force Association’s National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The all-female coding team represented Delaware and advanced to the National semi-finals, and they ultimately placed 165th out of 1,200 qualifying teams.

The competition is called CyberPatriot, and was established in 2009. It is designed to educate and motivate students to pursue a career in cybersecurity and other STEM disciplines.

The Padua Academy team was led by Coach Fred Stinchcombe, who described how the students excelled through their use of critical thinking and technical skills.

“It’s been another great year for the Cyber Pandas. The girls have performed fantastically. As a young person you learn really quickly that to win, you need to engage in teamwork and creative thinking. It supplies so many life lessons that just can’t be taught within the confines of a classroom setting. Now we move on to GirlsGoCyberStart and another season of the National Cyber League!”

More information about the CyberPatriot Competition can be found on their website.
