The CyberPatriot competition is a US program to excite and motivate high school students in cybersecurity. Each team receives an identical network to secure and protect. No offensive activity is allowed. A team of attackers simulates the environment that students would see if they were protecting a real-world network. An educational component includes training materials and presentations.
