CyberFirst Girls Competition 2019 - a chance to shine
In 2017, when we developed the idea of holding a competition to encourage more young girls to study GCSE computer science, I don’t think we appreciated the huge interest that it would generate and the fantastic talent that it would uncover. In hindsight, we shouldn’t have been surprised – a quick glimpse into GCHQ’s 100 year history sees women playing an incredibly important part in the development of cutting edge technology and code breaking – most prominently at Bletchley Park. It’s this lateral innovative thinking, creativity and team work which will help teams of up to 4 girls, in year 8, S2 in Scotland and Year 9 in Northern Ireland, compete in the UK’s biggest cyber security competition. The competition is made up of two parts; the online round and the grand final. If you know of a school that may be interested in entering teams then please encourage a representative of the school to register or perhaps even consider volunteering to help them enter a team. Already we have seen hundreds of schools registered with thousands of girls set to compete in the online round which begins on Monday 21st January at noon and will run until noon Monday 28th January 2019.
