Several Montgomery Preparatory Academy for Career Technologies students took part in a multi-part technology competition during the Air Force Information Technology and Cyberpower Conference.

The competition, called InnovateAFITC, teamed the students and MPACT IT instructor Tammie Jones with military members and IT professionals from related career backgrounds in network communications, cybersecurity, software development, and design.

Dai’shun Johnson, a Carver High and MPACT student, was on the winning team, BEST, and was awarded the championship belt along with his team members at the Montgomery Performing Arts Center.

The teams worked through a series of challenges including Code Troubleshooting, Website Attack, Network Communications, Server Hardening, and Mobile Application Build/Pitch. Jones and students were on teams that won in individual challenges.
