The Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA) is working in conjunction with the MultiState Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC). They’ve invited students to share what they know about internet safety by participating in the “Kids Safe Online” Poster Contest.
The contest asks students (K–12) to submit hand-drawn or electronically created works that aim to encourage their peers to make safe decisions about posting pictures, videos, and personal information online.
The 2019-20 Commonwealth of Virginia’s “Kids Safe Online” Poster Contest Submissions are due by 12:00 midnight, Jan. 10, 2020. Entries should be emailed to CommonwealthSecurity@VITA.virginia.gov, or mailed to:
