The NYS Office of Information Technology Services’ Enterprise Information Security Office is hosting the “NYS K-12 Kids Safe Online Poster Contest” this fall in conjunction with “National Cyber Security Awareness Month” activities. Attached is an informational flyer inviting students to participate in the contest which may be distributed to all parents, teachers, and students in NYS public, private and home-schools.
This is a great opportunity for teachers to talk to students about being safe while on the Internet and when using computers and mobile devices. The contest has four entry categories: Kindergarten – Grade 2, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8 and Grades 9-12. New York State winners will be displayed in the 2018 NYS Kids Safe Online Calendar and entered into the MS-ISAC National Computer Security Poster Contest which is held in the spring.

Don’t miss out! The Contest entry deadline is November 30, 2016.
