Who Will Win? Final Week in 2nd Annual “What’s Your Story?” Contest

by Lynette OwensLast month, we launched the 2nd annual “What’s Your Story?” competition, an international user-generated video contest that empowers youth to be leaders in educating others about being safe online. We are now in the final week for entries, which can be submitted until April 5. Videos can continue to be viewed and rated by the public until April 12. As a reminder, anyone 13 and older, including schools, in Canada, the UK and the U.S. can create a video educating their peers about the safe and responsible use of the Internet. The goal of the contest is to help parents, teachers and youth become more aware of Internet safety issues so young people can be safe and responsible online. The winning video will be awarded a grand prize of $10,000. Additionally, there will be 6 runner-up prizes for the best 3 schools and best 3 individual entries in each contest category. It is a combination of views, ratings, and ultimately the judge’s panel that will determine the winners. The judges also intend to use the winning entries (as we did last year) for educational purposes in various forums and events around the world. (This year’s judges include Common Sense Media, Connectsafely, Facebook, MyYearbook and WebWise Kids.) Trend Micro
