The contest seeks creative, topical, and effective posters and videos of two minutes or less that focus attention on computing security problems and how best to handle them. Students compete for cash prizes, sponsored by the National Cyber Security Alliance. One gold, one silver, and one bronze placement will be awarded to the winners in each of four categories: poster; short training or instructional video; 30-second public service announcement; and combined poster and video.
