Since 2009, CyberPatriot’s National Youth Cyber Defense Competition has challenged teams of two to six students to secure simulated computer systems and resolve real-life cybersecurity situations faced by industry professionals. The competition provides students hands-on experience securing computer networks while exciting, educating, and motivating them toward careers in cybersecurity and other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
The National Final Competition is the only in-person round, where teams compete to defend virtual networks and mobile devices from a professional aggressor team. The National Finalists also face-off in three additional competition components: the Cisco Networking Challenge, the Leidos Digital Forensics Challenge, and the Facebook Cybersecurity Challenge.
The CyberPatriot competition provides students with skills that can be used in the work force once they graduate high school.

The goal of the Northside School of Innovation, Technology & Entrepreneurship Mentor Program is to provide our students with role models in professional positions who will contribute to their personal development and expand their understanding of the business world and future career opportunities. Our Mentoring Program is honored with over 150 mentors and some have been mentoring our students for over 10 years! The San Antonio and surrounding area large and small corporate community pulls together to reach our future innovative business leaders of NSITE.
The school provides an opportunity for students and mentors to have lunch together on the NSITE campus approximately once a month from September to May. The student and mentor meet during the student's assigned lunch period. Some months, the school's culinary arts classes prepare the meal. Other months, mentors bring lunch for themselves and their mentee.
The NSITE staff will be responsible for pairing students and mentors. Every effort will be made to match students and mentors with similar career or extracurricular interests.
The application process is now open for the 2019-2020 school year.

Thank you NSITE Community!
Thank you to all of the many businesses, including those listed below, who serve as our Mentors and represent our supportive community.
The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) involves women business owners from San Antonio who mentor young high school female students to encourage them to explore entrepreneurship as a means to financial independence and career satisfaction. In turn, the students compete for scholarships by composing a business plan to possibly start a business of their own in the future. The students meet several times after school with women business owners to develop business etiquette tips, learning about collaboration, team building, and brainstorming business ideas to begin the dream of becoming an entrepreneur and making it a reality.
Please contact Mrs. Zapper or Mrs. Gutierrez for more NAWBO information or visit www.nawbosa.org
