CyberFirst Girls competition - Secondary Schools only
Registration for the CyberFirst Girls Competition 2020 opens on Monday 2 December 2019. Free to enter, the competition looks for Year 8 girls to form teams, in order to take on an online round of puzzles and codebreaking challenges, all related to the world of cyber security. They don’t need to know anything about the field yet though: they’ll learn it all along the way.
The highest scoring teams then go through to the semi-finals, taking place on 8 February 2020 in locations across the UK, and our grand final event on 15-16 March 2020, where they’ll compete in a simulated real-world cyber incident. At the same time though, they’ll also find incredible experiences at each event, attending exciting venues, meeting senior public figures, hearing from senior female leaders in tech, and finding out what their future in this field could look like. Previous winners met the Queen as part of GCHQ centenary celebrations.
