Cyber Safety Poster Contest 2018

Cybersecurity Awareness "Kids Safe Online" Poster Contest
Posted on 11/16/2017
Students in grades kindergarten through twelve are invited to participate in the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Kids Safe Online Poster contest. The contest is sponsored by the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA) in conjunction with the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC). This is a national contest which encourages our youth to use the Internet safely and securely.

Educating our children about the rules of Internet safety will encourage them to make better decisions when posting pictures, videos and personal information online.

The top five winning posters from Virginia for each grade group (K-5, 6-8 and 9-12) will be submitted to the national Multi-State Cyber Security Awareness poster contest. MS ISAC will select a total of 13 winners to have their artwork displayed in the 2019 National Stay Safe Online Calendar which will be distributed throughout the country and used in campaigns to raise awareness among children of all ages about internet and computer safety. The top four submissions will also be made into posters promoting cybersecurity practices. The winning Virginia posters will be featured on the Virginia Information Technology Agency website.

The official rules, entry form and information regarding the poster topics and technical specifications are available on the VITA website at http://vita.virginia.gov/security/default.aspx?id=11232
