picoCTF is a computer security game targeted at middle and high school students. The game consists of a series of challenges centered around a unique storyline where participants must reverse engineer, break, hack, decrypt, or do whatever it takes to solve the challenge. The challenges are all set up with the intent of being hacked, making it an excellent, legal way to get hands-on experience.

This year’s competition features a brand new adventure. When your friend disappears unexpectedly, you must learn and use computer security skills to uncover and decipher critical evidence behind their whereabouts. Can you find your friend before it’s too late?


$30,000 for players eligible for prizes. Anyone can play, but only students in grades 6-12 may win prizes.

How do I add write-ups for tasks that are not present in the list of tasks? I get a 500 if I try to add a task.

That was a problem this weekend but seems to be fixed now. You should be able to add tasks again.
