Three  Competitions

Smart-IT - This is new venue and will feature smart device programming (Raspberry Pi) with sensors to solve a problem.  Students will come to IT-Olympics with a smart device that will be judged.  While the primary challenge is being judged they will work on a real-time challenge.  All schools will be given a parts list in the fall and will be asked to purchase at least 2 sets of parts.  (We expect the total cost of the parts to be under $100 per kit, which will be the responsibility of the schools)  


Cyber  - The cyber venue will remain the same except for the on-site setup phase.  During the week leading up to IT-Olympics the IT-A support staff will be available to help trouble shoot any services and to make sure all teams are running before the event starts on Saturday.  The attack phase will be the same as before (starting at 8 am and going to 4 pm, followed by a debrief)

Community Service - Security Literacy 

Community service will become its own venue where teams will work during the year on security literacy.  Teams will submit their community service projects before IT-Olympics.  The community service projects will be judged beforehand and the top teams will present at IT-Olympics.  Unlike other venues the students in community service venue will be expected to be part of another venue and there will not be a real-time challenge.
