Kids Safe Online Cybersecurity Awareness Poster Contest

The State of Minnesota and the Multi-State Information Sharing & Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) are hosting the annual Kids Safe Online Poster Contest in partnership with Minnesota IT Services (MNIT) Department of Education (MDE) and the Department of Human Services(DHS). Children and young adults are at risk online every day. Whether it is cyber-bullying, unwanted attention, or someone trying to obtain personal information or pictures, online safety is a topic that can’t be ignored. The popular contest encourages Minnesota’s youth to use the internet safely, securely, and engages them in creating messages and images to communicate to their peers the importance of staying safe online.

Winners will be featured in the 2019 MS-ISAC calendar, which is sent to schools across the nation. Have their poster proudly displayed on the MNIT website.
