2016 Kids Safe Online Poster Contest

posted Dec 1, 2015, 12:09 PM by Sharon James   [ updated Aug 14, 2016, 4:33 PM ]
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 three 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. The winning posters will be displayed in the 2017 National Stay Safe Online Calendar and may also be used in campaigns to raise awareness among children of all ages about internet and computer safety. The winning Virginia posters will be featured on our website.

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

The deadline for poster entry forms and posters is midnight Jan. 8, 2016. Late entries will not be accepted. Winners will be notified by email. If you have questions or need assistance, please email CommonwealthSecurity@vita.virginia.gov
