Teacher Scholarships

SY 2015/2016 DODDS-Okinawa STEM Teacher Scholarship

This scholarship program is a means to promote effective teaching and to enhance the abilities of a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) academic environment for students. The program is in its 12th consecutive year. For this school year (SY2015-2016), the chapter has increased the scholarship to three $1,000 awards. It provides for each school to only compete within their respective school level (Elementary, Middle & High School) thereby ensuring each level receives an award every year.

Cyber Patriot

The Okinawa AFCEA chapter is a proud supporter of the island’s own Cyber Patriot Program!

What is Cyber Patriot?

​​”CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program.  There are three main programs within CyberPatriot: the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition, AFA CyberCamps and the Elementary School Cyber Education Initiative. CyberPatriot was conceived by the Air Force Association (AFA) to inspire high school students toward careers in c​ybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future.”  – www.uscyberpatriot.org

The Okinawa AFCEA chapter is a proud supporter of Kadena High School’s own Cyber Patriot Program! The program this year would not have been possible without a commercial internet connection required for the competition, the chapter donated nearly $1,000 to the program which secured a 1 year service contract.

Okinawa’s local Cyber Patriot program consists of three teams from the Kadena High School led by TSgt. Ira Richardson of the 18th Communications Squadron. The students regularly practice detecting and repairing vulnerabilities to operating systems as well as learning about the network infrastructure that supports our world today! Volunteers are always welcome to share their IT experience and expertise with the team.

Please see the video below originally posted by AFN Okinawa.
