Frequently Asked Questions

SummitCTF is an annual Capture the Flag (CTF) competition hosted by the Cybersecurity Club at Virginia Tech (CyberVT). The next competition will have two competition tiers: one for undergraduate competitors, and another for non-students.
The main difference between the two tiers is that the non-students will not be able to compete in the King of the Hill CTF and attend in-person. We may also not be able to offer prizes for non-students, pending availability of funds from sponsors.
The competition will officially start on 3/30/2024 for students, and the day after for non-students.
