National Poster Contest Winners Announced


The Center for Internet Security, a national non-profit dedicated to improving cyber security in the public and private sectors, announced the winners of its 2013 Kids Safe Online Poster Contest.

Thousands of students from across the nation participated in the contest, which was open to public, private and home-schooled students in grades K-12. The artwork and messages focused on themes such as preventing cyber bullying, practicing good cyber ethics, staying safe on social networking sites, and protecting against worms and viruses. Thirteen entries were selected and will appear in a 2014 calendar distributed nationally this fall by the MS-ISAC as part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, recognized each October.

We are extremely pleased to announce that two of the thirteen winners were from West Virginia.

Congratulations to: 
·         Dena J. from Crum Middle School in Wayne County.  Dena is in 6th grade and her artwork was titled “Texting and Driving”
·         Madison B. from Mason County Career Center in Point Pleasant. Madison is in 10th grade and titled her work “Cyber Bullying.”
Each year, participation in this contest increases, and we are thrilled to have so many students and schools involved. The creativity and imagination displayed in all of the entries speak volumes about how talented and cyber-aware these children are.
