The 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 State of Ohio is proud to be a part of this annual contest to promote cyber security awareness and safety with all students. Each year the state receives thousands of original posters from K-12 students all across the state. The posters are then separated into 3 age groups; K-5, 6-8 and 9-12. From these the OISP staff picks the top 15 for each age group and we post them on the DAS website for the State of Ohio employees to vote for the top 5. The top 5 from each group are then sent to MS-ISAC for national judging.
The contest will be open to all public, private or home-schooled students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. Winning entries 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 awareness campaigns.
For the past several years the State of Ohio has had winning entries in the calendar. Check out the 2017 Calendar.
