Spotlight on the Criteria Regional Winners

In an effort to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, the U.S. Army would like to congratulate the 2009-2010 eCYBERMISSION criteria winning regional teams.

A free, web-based STEM competition for students in grades six through nine, the eCYBERMISSION program selects teams with the two highest scores in each grade and region as the first-place and second-place regional winning teams. eCYBERMISSION also awards a team in each grade and region in four criteria award categories. These categories include: Application of Science, Math & Technology; Innovation, Originality & Creativity; Benefit to the Community; and Team Collaboration & Communication.
