The Department of Defense Education Activity is encouraging students to participate in the Army’s eCYBERMISSION Awards Program.

eCYBERMISSION is a Web-based competition open to students from sixth to ninth grade. It is is designed to stimulate interest in science, math and technology, according to a DODEA release.

Teams of three to four students plus an adult adviser select a "mission challenge" problem and compete for regional and national awards while working toward solutions. Challenges are in the areas of sports and recreation, arts and entertainment, environment, and health and safety.
