The 2024 NICE K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference is a two-day event that gathers the most dynamic and innovative cybersecurity education leaders and professionals from across the US for an intensive, highly collaborative exploration to promote cybersecurity careers through multiple pathways, identify methods to transform learning, and much more.

The NICE K12 Conference is known to cybersecurity-related educators and educational stakeholders as the best place to engage with the thought leaders and pioneers leading the charge in classrooms, schools, districts, and regional and statewide cybersecurity education programs. The NICE K12 Conference is the national hub for providing innovative teaching and learning resources for K12 educators to inspire their students to be the future cybersecurity workforce.

The NICE K12 Conference Planning Committee seeks proposals from organizations and individuals with diverse perspectives, including K12 educators, school counselors, higher education faculty, employers and practitioners, non-profits, curriculum providers, research centers, and training and certification providers. Topics should align with one of the five conference tracks: Increasing Cybersecurity Career Awareness, Engaging Students Where Disciplines Converge, Stimulating Innovative Cybersecurity Educational Approaches, Promoting Cybersecurity Career Pathways, and Promoting Cyber Awareness.
