Ecybermission is a Web-based regional and national competition intended to engage students in grades six through nine in math, science, and technology explorations. The teams propose a solution to a real problem in their communities and compete for awards (such as US savings bonds). The website provides information on how to register as well as volunteer options such as judging, acting as a CyberGuide providing online coaching and assistance to teams, or becoming an ambassador, spreading the word about the program. The site also features the project that won last year's competition, a two-digit key code system that can be used to improve speed at which 911 calls can be handled. Registration for the next competition has not yet opened, but last year's registration ran from September 1 through December 13. The program is sponsored by the Department of Army and the final judging event is held in Washington, D.C.
