Please encourage Hawaii’s young women in high school to sign-up by this Friday (Feb 16) for the  www.GirlsGoCyberStart.com Contest!

Aloha all,

Just a reminder to continue to promote the GirlsGoCyberStart contest for our young women in high school—last day to register is this Friday (Feb 16th).  As of last Thu, Hawaii had 134 students signed up and is in the top quarter of 18 states/territory participating.  FYI that I’m available to discuss/present this program with anyone to further promote this program.

 

Playing GirlsGoCyberStart is simple:

 

Register:  Jan 29 – Feb 16 (at www.girlsgocyberstart.com)

Play: Feb 20-25

Win: All expense paid trips to the Women in CyberSecurity Conference in Chicago, Chromebooks, and more…

 

In addition to what I previously sent, below are more resources that can assist with promoting this event:

 

  1.  A site to send people (or go) to to try out a couple of challenges:  https://medium.com/girls-go-cyberstart/girls-go-cyberstart-challenge-teasers-ea7d0c35c5d3

 

  1.  A whole collection of wonderful assets that will help promote the program. You can find them all here:  https://www.dropbox.com/sh/plqcqy36xt2buef/AAAW0jRJ9IzNluF8kyxVdmeja?dl=0

 

In the dropbox link, you should find folders for:

 

  • Logos – PDF’s and PNG’s (with a transparent background)
  • Posters – 4 posters, 2 of which have space for teachers to write additional information e.g a classroom that the competition may be running
  • Powerpoint slide – a PowerPoint template should you need/want it
  • Imagery of girls playing CyberStart – Images of girls playing with the game. Perfect for press releases and social media.
  • Social media imagery – specific image sizes work better on specific platforms. There are folders with photos the correct size for Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin in the social media imagery folder.
  • Example social posts – There is also a folder with some example social media posts that we used for a similar programme in the UK. Hopefully these help with posts to accompany the above images.

 

When posting from social media, please use the following links to direct people to the homepage. These links will help us track where people are coming from so we can see the impact of different social platforms. When posting from:
