Each year, the MS-ISAC hosts the Kids Safe Online Poster Contest for K-12 students nationwide. This contest has students submit pieces of artwork that are covering topics on being safe online, good online security practices, and how to be a good digital citizen. The winners of the contest are made into our cybersecurity awareness posters and calendars that are distributed nationwide for October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month.

The contest runs until January 26, 2018 and we are accepting submissions until that time. Below are links to the contest guide and registration form that go over how to enter the contest and how to make your submissions. Each entry must have a registration form accompanying it so that we can keep track of winners!
