Students of all ages are invited to participate for a chance to use their original artwork to help raise awareness of internet and computer safety among their classmates.
Each year, the Center for Internet Security’s Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center holds a national K-12 art contest to encourage young people to use the internet safely and securely as well as to craft messages and images that resonate strongly with other students.
MS-ISAC will select winners from three grade groups (K-5, 6-8 and 9-12). Thirteen winners will have their artwork displayed in the 2022 MS-ISAC calendar, which will be distributed throughout the country and used in campaigns to raise awareness about cybersecurity. (Check out the 2021 MS-ISAC calendar.)
The top four submissions will also be used as posters that promote good cybersecurity practices. (Check out the winning posters for 2020.)
