MS-ISAC K-12 Computer Safety Poster contest

The Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) is once again conducting a national K-12 Computer Safety Contest to encourage young people to use the Internet safely and securely and to craft messages and images that will best resonate with their peers across the country. The contest launches September 27, 2016, and is open to all public, private or home-schooled students in kindergarten through twelfth grade.

Posters will be judged on the following criteria: creativity, originality, poster concept and adherence to technical specifications. Any entry that infringes upon copyright or contains any trademark images or links for brands such as Disney Characters, Dell, Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc. will not be judged.

Poster contest criteria can be found online at the MS-ISAC website:  https://msisac.cisecurity.org/toolkit/documents/20162017PosterContest.pdf

Winning entries of the National Contest will be included in the MS-ISAC 2018 Calendar, which is distributed to every state in the country as part of the MS-ISAC Cyber Security Awareness Toolkit. Entries received may also be used in other national, regional and state cyber and computer security awareness campaigns. Last year's contest included more than 1,000 student entries.
