Sergio Cifuentes, a Potomac High School junior, is the winner of the 2017-2018 National Kids Safe Online Poster Contest with his submission titled, “Do you really know who you are talking to online?” As the national winner, Sergio’s creation will be displayed on the cover of the 2019 Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) calendar, which is distributed to every state in the country.

Sergio’s artwork will also be used in other national, state, and regional cyber and computer security awareness campaigns. Prior to winning the national contest, Sergio’s submission placed first in the 2018 Commonwealth of Virginia Kids Safe Online Poster Contest, advancing him to the national poster competition.

Each year, the Center for Internet Security, Inc. (CIS) and the MS-ISAC invite all public, private, or homeschooled students in grades K–12 to create posters illustrating safety on the internet and/or mobile devices. The goal of the contest is to increase awareness by creating posters to encourage others to use the internet safely and securely.
