Posted on Friday, September 30th, 2011 at 12:00 am


UTAH -- Teams of high school students throughout Utah have now joined hundreds of others in registering for CyberPatriot IV, the nation’s largest and fastest-growing high school cyber defense challenge. Those participating from the Top of Utah are Clearfield High School, Northridge High School in Layton and Civil Air Patrol’s Weber Minuteman Composite Squadron in Ogden. Registration for CyberPatriot IV will remain open until October 8, 2011. Public, private, parochial and home schools register in the Open Division, while Junior ROTC units of all services and Civil Air Patrol squadrons register in the All Service Division. Earlier today, the Air Force Association announced that more than 800 teams are now registered to compete. With 47 states, Puerto Rico and U.S. Department of Defense Dependent Schools in England, Germany, Japan and Korea already represented, educators are seizing this great opportunity to bolster STEM education in their communities. Only Washington D.C., Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont and Wyoming have yet to join the national challenge.


Requests keep Texas color guard busy

Posted on Friday, September 30th, 2011 at 12:00 am


TEXAS -- September has been a busy month for the cadet color guard from Civil Air Patrol's Texoma Composite Squadron in Denison, with performances at the openings of two local high school homecoming football games in two consecutive weeks (Denison on the 16th and Sherman on the 23rd). And, their work shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Members of the color guard continue their “tour” of local schools tonight at Bells High School, making their third appearance at a homecoming game in three weeks. This time, however, there will be more work to do: in addition to the color guard presenting the colors during the National Anthem, the squadron’s entire cadet corps has been asked to participate in the homecoming ceremonies.
