MAGIC's Capture the Flag is an ethical hacking cybersecurity competition for entry-level participants at the high school and college level. No prior experience is required and the event is free for participants. MAGIC's CTF will feature teams of 2-4 students working their way through a series of cybersecurity puzzles set up in a jeopardy style format to find hidden flags to earn points. Coaches will be on site to help students if needed.

St. Mary's County Library is one of a number of organizations across the country participating in this live event. The top three teams across all locations will win Amazon gift cards for each team member.

We will have a limited number of laptops available. Students who can do so, should plan to bring their own laptops. Laptops must have Remote Desktop software installed. This software is automatically installed on Windows machines. For Mac users, download Microsoft Remote Desktop from the App Store (free).

Pizza and beverages will be provided and every participant gets a t-shirt!
