Registration and Competition Process

Click here to apply and add a team to your 2023 state competition roster.

School Teams must first participate at the State Level.  State CCDC winners are eligible to compete in the 2023 Erich J. Spengler Midwest Regional CCDC at Moraine Valley Community College, March 17-18, 2023. The Midwest CCDC winner will be competing at the National CCDC April 28-30, 2023.

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 2023 Midwest CCDC. There is no entry fee for the Midwest CCDC, but teams travel to the event at their own expense.

Why Participate?

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.

For more information on attending, participating, sponsoring, or volunteering for the Midwest CCDC, contact David Durkee by email or phone 440-488-0331.
