Trend Micro’s Internet Safety for Kids and Families and an international coalition of social networks and Internet safety advocates want to hear your story about what it means to use the Internet safely and responsibly.
The contest, sponsored by the global technology security company Trend Micro, asks anyone 13 and older, including teachers with their classrooms, to create and submit a video educating their peers about the risks on the Internet and how best to stay safe when engaging in online activities. These activities include texting, instant messaging and using social networking sites. Deadline is April 5.
Videos must address one of three issues: being a good citizen online, using a mobile phone wisely or maintaining your privacy online. One winner will win the $10,000 grand prize, although others will be awarded to schools and individuals.
