CHEVY CHASE, Md. (PRWEB) September 13, 2018
The struggle to recruit and obtain more students in cybersecurity careers continues to be a challenge despite the plethora of available job opportunities. To address this critical workforce shortage, National Cyber League (NCL) is helping the effort with a new sponsorship option for companies to become Student Sponsors.
Companies and organizations can now directly sponsor 100 or more high school or college students to play NCL on their company’s behalf. The NCL registration system allows the purchase of codes that will be distributed. Students can then use that code to register for the Fall Season. On request, companies also can receive an overall performance report of how well the sponsored students did during their competitive play.
In addition to helping fast-track the next generation of cyber warriors through real-world skills gained playing NCL, sponsors will be acknowledged as a Student Sponsor by having their company logo on the NCL website and mentioned in marketing emails, social media and news releases. The donation is tax-deductible, as NCL is a 501(c)(3).
Fall Season registration is ongoing through Sept. 28. Batch registration for Student Sponsors is $25 per player. For more information on sponsorship, visit http://www.nationalcyberleague.org/sponsorship.
