The Mississippi Department of Information Technology Services is promoting a Cyber Security Awareness Poster 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 state. All public and private schools, and youth organizations in Kindergarten - 12th grades in Mississippi are eligible to participate in the contest. The poster contest will be launched in October as part of the National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
The Mississippi Department of Information Technology Services will judge all entries and will select the top 3 per grade group (K-5, 6-8, 9-12). Any entry that infringes upon copyright will not be judged.
The winning posters from the State of Mississippi contest will be entered into the national poster contest sponsored by the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) division of Center for Internet Security (CIS). National contests will include Kindergarten - 12th grade students in the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Territories. The winning posters selected in the national contest will be displayed in a national cybersecurity calendar, the MS-ISAC website and may also be used in campaigns to raise awareness among children of all ages about Internet and cybersecurity.
