As cyberbullying and internet safety continues to be a big concern among parents, Trend Micro is sponsoring its second annual Internet Safety for Kids contest with partners such as Facebook, ConnectSafely, Common Sense Media, and Web Wise Kids.
“What’s Your Story?” is a user-generated video contest about educating on “how to stay safe when engaging in online activities, including texting, instant messaging, or social networking.” Anyone over the age of 13 (including parents!) can enter the contest.
The contest will launch on February 8 and will have three categories: Being a Good Online Citizen, Using a Mobile Phone Wisely, and Maintaining Online Privacy. Individual and school entries will be awarded with prizes, but just one grand prize winner will receive $10,000.
