๐Ÿ“šPlanning Your Event

You can plan a competition in just a few steps

Step 1: Pick a Date and Time

KC7 Cyber Competitions are meant to be fun and interactive. Since many participants are learning cybersecurity concepts for the first time, itโ€™s important to give plenty of time for learners to immerse themselves in the content and have fun. We recommend 4-6 hours for the best experience, whether itโ€™s hosted online or in-person.

Step 2: Estimate Your Audience Size

There is no maximum recommended size for a KC7 Cyber Competition, but itโ€™s important to get an estimate of the number of attendees so you can plan accordingly. We suggest sending out a survey to help gauge interest or creating a registration form.

Step 4: Recruit Volunteers

You donโ€™t need to be a cybersecurity expert to host a KC7 Cyber Competition. This guide will share everything you need to facilitate a KC7 Cyber Competition. Depending on the number of expected participants, you might need to recruit some volunteers.

If youโ€™re expecting 1-30 participants, we recommend at least 2 volunteers. For events with more than 30 participants, we recommend recruiting 1 additional volunteer for every 30 added participants.

Step 5: Select Prizes

Participants will be competing against each other in teams to win the competition! Having prizes ready for your event can be a great way to motivate participants to stay engaged and push through to the end.

Step 6: Choose a Format

KC7 Cyber Competitions can be successfully hosted online or in-person. You should decide early which event format works best for you, since that will impact many other aspects of the planning process.
