I won a book, Job Reconnaissance, for placing 4th in the BSidesWpgCTF that took place as part of the BSides Winnipeg 2013 2-day conference.
Truth be told, I probably placed 4 because only 3 serious contestants entered the contest, but aside from winning, it was also lots of fun – I now know what punch cards were used for and a bit about how they worked. As well, I got a chance to write a fun short python script.
The book seems like an intelligent, but also fun way of approaching getting a job. I look forward to reading it!
