NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing

National Center for Women and Information Technology

Every year, NCWIT holds its Awards for Aspirations in Computing(AiC). They award those who self-identify as women, genderqueer, or non-binary and have computer-related achievements and interests. The main purpose of the awards is to encourage the awardees to follow their passions in computing fields and have connections with other like-minded women. 
 
I received the 2020 National Honorable Mention Award. There are only 360 National Honorable Mention awardees out of 4,600 applicants, meaning they are in the top 10%.
Girls Go Cyberstart is an online training game and competition meant to introduce young women to the world of cybersecurity and CTF (Capture the Flag) competitions. Girls Go Cyberstart is organized in three stages: Assess, Game, and Compete.

The first stage, Assess, gives the user a few puzzles to solve as a demonstration to what is to come in the other stages. The Game stage trains the user with more complex puzzles, tutorials, and lessons on how to code in Python. The stage also teaches the user Linux commands, how to use Wireshark, basics of steganography (hidden messages in images), and other fun cybersecurity topics. The last stage, Compete, is a CTF competition where a group of 4 young women from the same school forms a team to compete against other schools nationally. The team is given a set of problems with varying levels of difficulty and point value. The more points a team earns, the higher their place will be on the leaderboard.

My team and I placed 2nd in the state of Nevada and 64th nationally. Since my team placed so high in Nevada, each team member and my school received some money. I used my share of the money to reward my teammates with a Raspberry Pi 4. A Raspberry Pi is a small, cheap computer that is useful when learning more about Linux, various coding languages such as Python and JavaScript, and other cybersecurity tools. I wanted to thank my teammates for their effort, and I wanted to give them a tool so that they could grow their skills for next year’s Girls Go Cyberstart.
