Exhibition Rounds FOR the CyberPatriot IX season will be held the following dates:
The Exhibition Rounds are open to all coaches who have submitted their team applications for the 2016-2017 season*. The schedule, including image types, is as follows:
- Exhibition Round #1 | May 18-27, 2016 | Windows 7
- Exhibition Round #2 | June 1-10, 2016 | Windows 7, Ubuntu
- Exhibition Round #3 | July 6-15, 2016 | Windows 7, Ubuntu
- Exhibition Round #4 | August 10-19, 2016 | Windows 7, Ubuntu
The Exhibition Rounds are for recruiting CyberPatriot participants and orienting school, organization, and community leaders to the CyberPatriot Program. They are also designed to give Coaches and Competitors a feel for the online competition rounds. Exhibition rounds are not meant to provide an in-depth challenge of cybersecurity skills.
Coaches registered for CP-IX will receive a download and instructions email around 12:00 p.m. ET on the first day of each Exhibition Round. Coaches registering after a round begins will receive an instructions email a day or two after they register. Images are the same every round.
Teams may use the images for an unlimited amount of time during the round, and may have multiple instances of the same image running at the same time. Each Exhibition Round image will remain available until 5:00 p.m. ET on ending date.
Technical support is available at firstname.lastname@example.org / 877-885-5716 during normal business hours (M-F 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM ET). There is no technical support on weekend or holidays.
*Reminder: CyberPatriot Coaches must re-register each season. The first step to registering as a Coach is to create a CyberPatriot Volunteer account by submitting a Volunteer Registration Form. Returning coaches can use their log-in credentials from the previous season. Further instructions on registering teams as a team coach are available here.
