Cyber Security Month: Social Media Contests

October is Cyber Security Awareness Month. To promote this, we are going to have a number of cyber security-related social media contests which you can participate and try to win a prize! If you have not liked us on Facebook, go ahead and do that so you can get a head start on the competition! For more information, please contact the Service Desk at 936-294-1950. You can also send us an e-mail (

Here is our first social media contest:

 Monday October 8th will kick off our "NOOO Face" contest. The contest will run through Friday, October 12. Have you ever deleted a file or e-mail that you immediately remembered was extremely important? Have you ever found out something really shocking? Do you remember the face that you made as you said “OH NOOO!” That’s what we want to see from you!

Simply take photo of your “NOOO!” face and upload it to the IT@Sam Facebook Page. The best photo will win a 25$ gift card!

Here is an example from one of our student workers:
