Jason and Doug have already been congratulated by representatives from the White House, Department of Homeland Security, the F.B.I. and other event sponsors.

Jason was just one member of Team DVC, which Doug Spindler formed from members of the Bits “N” Bytes computer club. Team DVC competed against teams from two and four year colleges and universities nationwide, as well as a team from South Korea. Doug’s DVC team was also recognized for comprising the most diverse membership compared to all other teams.

Students are already contacting Doug asking to register for his CNT classes in order to prepare for next years’ completion.

The White House and USCC are preparing a press release regarding Jason’s win and Doug’s efforts to prepare DVC students for the competition.
