Introducing: The eCYBERMISSION Blog!

The eCYBERMISSION competition is excited to announce a social media initiative to stay connected to competition participants throughout the year. Whether you are a Team Advisor, Student, CyberGuide, Judge, Parent, or Ambassador we hope to use this blog to share our eCYBERMISSION experiences and to ensure your participation with eCYBERMISSION is as valuable and successful as possible.

This weekend is the start of the eCYBERMISSION 2009 National Judging and Educational Event (NJ&EE) and we could not think a better time to launch the blog than now!
