Spanning from March 1st at 00:00 to March 13th at 23:59, we are excited to announce that MGCI and WLMAC have joined together to host the WxMCTF cybersecurity competition!

To register, create an account on this site. For Ontario high school students, in order to be eligible for prizes, you will need to register with your full name, student email address, school name, and a teacher contact for verification purposes. After creating or joining a team, when the contest starts, you will be able to join the contest as a team. A comprehensive step-by-step tutorial is available here.

In this capture the flag (CTF) contest, teams of up to 4 will battle it out with their skills in digital forensics, website and binary exploitation, reverse engineering, and cryptography! Intended for students of all experience types, the challenges are designed with a low barrier of entry to enable even first-time competitors to gain experience and knowledge in an enjoyable, cooperative way.

This contest is organized by WLMAC's Cybersecurity Club and MGCI's CTF Club. Our $2000 worth of prizes are generously given by DigitalOcean. All can participate, though prizes are only for teams entirely made up of Ontario high school students.

First Place: $1000 DigitalOcean credits ($250 per person)
Second Place: $500 DigitalOcean credits ($125 per person)
Third Place: $400 DigitalOcean credits ($100 per person)
All participants: $200, 60-day free trial of DigitalOcean credits

  • All decisions made by contest organisers are final.
  • Do not share any flags, solutions, or hints with other contestants.
  • You are free to use any materials you find on the internet.
