There are two leaderboard pages available for the CyberStart America program while it is live - a National Leaderboard by State, and State Leaderboards by School. The leaderboards are designed to show how states/schools rank for participation in the program, and the number of participants who have qualified to be considered for prizes awarded by the National Cyber Scholarship Foundation.
Click any of the column headers to re-order the data by whichever metric is of interest to you!
The leaderboards do not display any information about individual program participants or their point scores.
National Leaderboard by State
The numbers provided on the CyberStart America National Leaderboard are to show which states are the most engaged with the CyberStart America program, both in absolute numbers and in percentage increases, week-on-week and year-on-year.
Below is an explanation of the data contained in each column.
The US state or territory that participants have stated on their registration form.
The number of individual students who have completed the registration process for CyberStart America.
Per 10k HS population
The number of students registered, adjusted relative to the population of high school students in that state. The number in this column shows how many students out of every 10,000 in the state have registed for the program in the current cycle. This allows fairer comparison of program uptake state by state.
The percentage increase of students registered compared to the numbers registered one week previously.
The percentage increase of students currently registered, compared with total students registered in that state by the end of the previous school year's CyberStart program. The numbers in this column will mostly be negative in the early part of the registration cycle, and will be a better point of comparison later in the year.
The number of individual schools in that state listed by participants on their registration form.
The percentage increase in number of schools registered, compared to the numbers registered one week previously.
