2023 SoCal Cyber Cup Challenge
National Defense Industry Association (NDIA) 14th Annual SoCal Cyber Cup Challenge
Request for Sponsorships
As we prepare for the 14th Annual SoCal Cyber Cup Challenge, we face a number of challenges. Namely, raising enough funds to maintain the excellence of our past competitions and expand to other middle and high schools, community colleges and their students. As we are all aware, the need for trained Cybersecurity experts has grown dramatically.
National University provides twenty tutorials and Cyber Skyline provide 3 months of a practice cybersecurity gym as well as a qualification round and final competition. Despite a generous donation from NDIA we were unable to fully fund Cyber Skyline. We had eliminated scholarships, the Mayors Trophy, finals dinner and T-shirts to concentrate on the challenge. Participating schools included middle schools, high schools, and community colleges in the five-county region of Imperial, San Diego, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties in Southern California. We reached over 50 schools and 675 students last year.
What You Can Do
Due to funding shortages this year, it is more imperative to expand our sources of income. Contributions made between now and February will determine the level of engagement our cybersecurity organizations can provide. We have restructured our Sponsorship levels in creating a general fund with sponsor levels.
Diamond Level for $5k
Platinum Level for $2k
Gold Level for $1K
Silver Level for $500
Bronze Level for $100
Supporter Level for $50
Contributor Level for $50
