Request for Sponsorships

As we prepare for the 13th Annual SoCal Cyber Cup Challenge, we face some of our own 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.

What You Can Do

Due to funding shortages this year, it is more imperative to expand our sources of income. Contributions made in January and February will determine the level of engagement our cybersecurity organizations can provide. We are restructuring 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

If you wish to give at a different level, please contact Kevin Bowen at [email protected]

For Silver Level and above, please send your name, email and logo to [email protected]

Help us spread the word to students to participate

Please send this page and the Student Flyer to interested students.

In its twelfth year, The SoCal Cyber Cup Challenge (SoCal CCC) is once again reaching out to all students in the five-county region of Imperial, San Diego, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties!

Middle, High School and Community College Students

It’s time to get excited, form a team and learn about one of the most exciting career choices you can make, while having fun and working together with your friends to bring big money to your school or organization. We have awarded more than $160,000 since the first SoCal Cyber Cup Challenge to help students build their cyber experience.

Here is what you need to do:

Simply form a three-to-eight-person team with a few of your friends, ask a teacher, counselor, or a parent to be your coach and have them register your team! If you wish, the organizers will help find a mentor for your team that can guide you through the exciting training steps and learning process. More than likely you will be on top of your game in a very short while!

SoCal CCC is FREE to all Students

This is only possible with Sponsors, Coaches and Mentors – Please consider helping!
