Singapore needs hackers... why?

I'm more than a little suspicious of this AP article. It seems that Singapore is holding a national hacking contest to "help shed light on ways to prevent actual computer attacks". They could do this more cheaply and effectively by visiting their local bookstore and picking up a copy of Hacking Exposed or something. It's just a feeling I have, but their stated reason doesn't seem on the level.
