The Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) is conducting its annual, national K-12 Computer Safety Contest to encourage young people to use the Internet safely and securely. The Office of Information Security and Controls is coordinating the State’s participation in this event.
The contest is open to all public, private and home-schooled students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. The top three winners from each of West Virginia’s grade groups (K-5, 6-8, 9-12) will be sent to MS-ISAC for entry into the MS-ISAC National Poster Contest. All participants will receive a certificate of participation and the top 9 state finalists will win prizes. Individuals who win at the national level receive additional prizes from MS-ISAC.
This will be the fourth year that West Virginia has competed. In each of the previous 3 years, West Virginia has placed nationally.
