Thought this might interest some of you and your kids (or nephews, friends, etc.):
Get ready. Get set. Go!
The core mission of the Executive Women's Forum is to create a trusted community of members who are encouraged to build strong networks and lasting relationships, who have access to empowering resources and who are inspired by each other to achieve their professional goals and personal dreams.
About the Challenge
The Cyber Security School Challenge is a collaborative outreach program founded by the Executive Women's Forum and in partnership with Carnegie Mellon University, (ISC)2, the National Cyber Security Alliance, and OwnYourSpaceŽ to help educate our youth on the topics of online security, privacy, and safety.
The EWF through its Cyber Security School Challenge outreach program is harnessing the collective passions and unified actions of its members and their peers to educate students in a way that may positively influence their future.
Who Should Accept the Challenge?
We are offering the challenge to all professionals (men and women) in the Information Security, Privacy and Risk Management communities to register at this site, follow the Three Steps and then report back to us the students you've taught.
We challenge you to not only contribute your time, but think of ways that you can create a corporate team that will boost your chances of becoming the Cyber Security School Challenge Winner.
We will be tracking the number of students each executive or their team reaches out to from now through September 2011. The executive or team that reaches out to the most students by September 2011 will be honored with an award, announcements and postings on the EWF website (http://www.ewf-usa.com/).

"Challenge accepted" would be the perfect meme for this :) Anyway, seems like yet another nice challenge to discover talents, within the infosec community. I'm glad to see more and more companies are doing this, so we can secure the future of the Internet even more ;)
