trains youth in the practical applications of
computer network defense within a competitive framework. Under a Memorandum
of Agreement signed in 2012, USNSCC participation will continue in 2015 with more
than 20 teams fielded for national competition. USNSCC sent two teams to the 2014
National Finals Competition. A USNSCC
volunteer with Centurion Battalion in
Florida was recognized as the CyberPatriot
VI Coach of the Year by the AFA.
A significant portion of 2014’s efforts
focused on continuous improvement of
USNSCC’s communication and outreach
capabilities. These included a refreshed
format and updated content on the public
website ( www.seacadets.org); the reinvigoration of social media pages; an organizational rebranding effort across the spectrum of communication materials; the
creation of a style guide to encourage
effective and consistent communication
of the program message; and the publication and distribution of Sea Cadet
Quarterly, which is a headquarters-produced magazine focusing on stories
and photos from cadets and volunteers.
Sea Cadet Quarterly is available digitally, with print copies being sent to a large
group of program supporters that includes
contacts on Capitol Hill, media groups
and members of the armed services.
The USNSCC offers a modest scholarship program in order to promote strong
performance and assist cadets in defraying the costs of higher education. Since
1975, more than $575,000 has been
awarded to more than 300 cadets who
received NSCC college scholarships.
Navy League councils also sponsor
approximately 300 Navy and Marine
Corps JROTC programs and more than 45
ROTC programs at colleges and universities. The Navy League has established a
“Youth Medal,” to recognize outstanding
JROTC cadets in units or schools sponsored by a Navy League council.
The Navy League supports the
NJROTC’s two major national competitions: the NJROTC National Academics,
Athletics & Drill Championships, traditionally held each year in Pensacola, Fla.,
and the NJROTC area managers’ evaluation of the overall performance of the
units in their 11 respective areas, from
which “Most Outstanding in Nation”
and “Most Improved in Nation” units are
chosen. The Navy League provides all of
the various awards; more than 100 in all,
for both competitions, and Navy
Leaguers are actively involved in making
the presentations of the area manager
evaluation awards. ■
