Students can Enter Cyber-in-a-Box School Video Challenge



Wyoming middle and high school classrooms or homeschoolers are encouraged to create new video content promoting public cybersecurity awareness for the Cyber-in-a-Box library program.

The Cyber-in-a-Box School Video Challenge offers teachers (or parent sponsors) $50 – $100 for supplies, and offers teams of up to five students (grades 6-12) t-shirts for entering the Challenge.

Cybersecurity is a community issue. In 2021, Wyoming citizens reported losses of over $10 million dollars (FBI Internet Crimes Complaint Center) for less than 600,000 people in the state. These losses are for our communities and we need to have conversations about being more security aware.

In creating the videos, the Challenge connects education objectives involving technology, computer science, communication, teamwork, and social behavior while enhancing community cyber-health and cyber-safety practices.
