Virginia Cyber Signing Day

The Virginia Cyber Range is launching the 2nd annual Virginia Cyber Signing Day in 2023. Cyber Signing Day is similar to signing day for athletes graduating from high school and signing on to play a sport at a college or university. We believe graduating high school students pursuing careers or further education in the cyber field are worthy of such recognition.

The Virginia Cyber Signing Day was inspired by the National Cyber Signing Day (NCSD), an annual event at the NICE K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference hosted by iKeepSafe. You can find past NCSD videos here.

Five students will receive recognition at the annual Virginia Cybersecurity Education Conference in July 2023. Students do not have to be in attendance to receive recognition at the conference.


Educators in a public high school in Virginia can nominate a senior graduating in the 2022-2023 school year.
