School Teams must first participate at the State Level. State CCDC winners are eligible to compete in the 2021 Erich J. Spengler Midwest Regional CCDC at Moraine Valley Community College, March 19-20, 2021. The Midwest Regional CCDC winner will be competing at the National CCDC April 23-25, 2021.
Only one application per team should be submitted, and only one team should compete from any given campus. Upon receipt, applicant teams will be contacted by your Midwest State CCDC Director for more detailed information. Again, no previous competition experience is needed. Competing teams are expected to pay a $500 entry fee for the 2021 Midwest State CCDC. There is no entry fee for the Midwest Regional CCDC, but teams travel to the event at their own expense.
The Midwest CCDC events not only benefit the students involved, but will also benefit corporations as these graduates will be bringing a more experienced skill set to their jobs upon beginning their employment. This competition also provides direct feedback for schools to exercise, reinforce, and examine their security and information technology curriculum.
