Talent search for cybersecurity studentsThe U.S. government on Monday launched a national talent search for high school and college students interested in working in cybersecurity.
With the U.S. Cyber Challenge the goal is to find 10,000 young Americans to be "cyber guardians and cyber warriors," according to a statement from the Center for Strategic & International Studies, which is sponsoring the event.There are three competitions that make up the U.S. Cyber Challenge: CyberPatriot network defense high school competition conducted by the Air Force Association; DC3 Digital Forensics Challenge conducted by the U.S. Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center; and NetWars, a vulnerability discovery and exploitation competition conducted by the SANS Institute.
Candidates with promising skills will be invited to attend regional camps at local colleges beginning next year. The top candidates will be hired by the National Security Agency, the FBI, Defense Department, US-CERT, and the U.S. Department of Energy Laboratories.

Id say that was amazing if i was still in HS or college and i thought i knew enough. Personally, I am glad they are finally figuring out that the idea behind War Games is completely plausible and the younger generation may not be "Corporate" ready but they know their stuff.
