Students in grades kindergarten through 12 are invited to participate in the State of Ohio’s Kids Safe Online poster contest. The contest, sponsored by the Office of Information Security & Privacy of the Ohio Department of Administrative Services, is part of a national contest held in collaboration with the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center to promote safe and secure Internet usage among young people.
Spreading the message about safe online behavior has never been more important. The majority of our youth are online, and the risks for cyber bullying, identify theft and other serious incidents among children is increasing.
The top three winning posters from each grade group (K-5, 6-8, 9-12) will be submitted to the Multi-State Cyber Security Awareness Calendar Contest. The winning posters from the Multi-State Cyber Security Awareness Calendar Contest will be displayed in the 2013 National Cyber Security Calendar and also may be used in campaigns to raise awareness among youth about Internet and computer safety.
The official rules, entry form and information regarding poster topics and technical specifications are available at: http://www.InfoSec.OHIO.gov under State of Ohio’s Kids Safe 2012 Poster Contest!
The deadline for poster art and entry forms is Midnight, Sunday, Feb. 19. Late entries will not be included in the contest.
Winners will be notified by Wednesday, Feb. 29
