• 2024 Cyber Calendar Contest

    To encourage participation in Cybersecurity Awareness Month activities and the MS-ISAC Kids Safe Online Contest, Region One ESC challenges District and Charter K-12 students in Region One to submit a drawing depicting a Cyber Awareness related topic. The 12 best drawings from grade groups K–5, 6–8, 9–12 will be selected to be used as a 12-month Region One Cybersecurity Awareness Calendar to be distributed to District and Charter School offices in Region One.  The winning entries will also be entered in the National MS-ISAC contest.

    The Region One Cybersecurity Calendar competition will continue to be a yearly tradition, encouraging Region One K-12 students to #BeCyberSmart and show others how to be Safe and Secure online.
