On Monday, Dec. 4, members of the CSforAR team from the Arkansas Department of Education spent the day on the Sheridan High School campus. Students in grades 9-12 participated in a Jeopardy-style Cybersecurity Capture the Flag Event (a CTF event), where they were provided hundreds of challenges that varied by category and complexity. Students were tasked with solving challenges around networking, website development, cryptography, programming, digital forensics, reverse engineering, physical challenges (like building a network cable), and more. This opportunity allows students to persevere and learn by taking what little information is provided to solve problems. #YJNation

All together, those 109 students packed 40,914 meals in just under 2 hours! The party and all of the meals were paid for by Blue Cross using a Blue and You Grants. The Grant County Fair board graciously loaned the group the Shelby Taylor Exhibit Building to host the party. All 40,914 meals were donated to Grant County food pantries including IBC, Kathy's Closet, First Landmark, the Women's Shelter, and the SHS Backpack Program.

It was a delight seeing some lucky attendees walk away with fantastic door prizes, adding excitement to an already fun and informative event! Special thank you to our sponsors whose support made our event even more special and memorable for these students.
