VITA "Kids Safe Online" Poster ContestWhile technology can provide many answers, it can also generate more questions. What information is safe to share on social media? Who should we text, and what content should we leave out? How can we handle cyberbullying?

Students are invited to help answer these questions and more by taking part in the “Kids Safe Online” Poster Contest. This national contest encourages students to use the internet safely and securely. Virginia students in grades K–12 create posters illustrating the safe use of the internet and/or mobile devices for submission in the 2018-19 Commonwealth of Virginia’s “Kids Safe Online” Poster Contest. Submissions are due by midnight, January 11, 2019. Entries should be sent to CommonwealthSecurity@VITA.virginia.gov.

View the Official Contest Rules and Entry Form (PDF) or visit the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA) webpage, vita.virginia.gov. VITA is the contest sponsor in conjunction with the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC).

The top five winning entries for each grade group (K–5, 6–8, and 9–12) will be entered in the national Multi-State Cyber Security Awareness Poster Contest. Thirteen winning posters will be part of the 2020 National Stay Safe Online Calendar. The winning Virginia posters will be featured on the VITA website.
