Newark Academy CTF (NACTF) is an online jeopardy-style cybersecurity competition hosted by Newark Academy's Computer Science Club. Form teams with up to 4 members and win awesome prizes! Teams compete to decrypt, hack, or reverse engineer challenges in topics like cryptography, forensics, and binary exploitation. Participation is open to anyone but prizes are restricted to US middle school and high school students. Register now to get ready for the competition to begin!

In addition to the CTF event, we will also be hosting a competitive programming event this year involving different algorithmic problems. These problems will be similar in style to those found on codeforces or USACO. The problems difficulties will range from USACO bronze to easier platinum level and our hardest problems will correspond to codeforces ratings of 2300+. Click here to register for the competitive programming competition.
