On March 7, 2016, Dun & Bradstreet presented a $90,000 grant to the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) in support of the Beyond the Bell (BTB) Cyber Defense Education program. The check presentation kicked off a competition between three of the top scoring local schools.
After rising to the top of a field of 3,379 teams from schools nationwide through four rounds of virtual competition, two teams from LAUSD advanced to the finals of CyberPatriot: The National Youth Cyber Security Competition, including Franklin High School, which has made it to the finals five times. For the first time ever, an LAUSD middle school team advanced to the finals as well.
Now that the competitions are over, it’s time to celebrate the winners! The Robert F. Kennedy middle school team, who is the only two-person team to ever make it to nationals and the first all girl team from LAUSD, won third place! Congratulations to all the teams on their hard work!
