  • Larry Magid: Submit Internet safety video & win $10K

    A contest conducted by Trend Micro in partnership with Common Sense Media, ConnectSafely and Identity Theft Resource Center will award $10,000 to the person who can create the best short video on Internet safety. There are four additional awards of $500 each.

    Anyone in the U.S. or Canada that is 13 or older can submit a short video (up to 2 minutes) to What's your Story, about an aspect of Internet safety. To qualify, your entry must focus on one or more of these topics: “Keeping a good rep online”, “Staying clear of unwanted contact” (including dealing with bullies), “Accessing (legal) content that's age-appropriate,” and “Keeping the cybercriminals out” (computer security issues like identity theft, scams, spam, viruses, and other bad stuff).
