Safer Internet Day 2008 Competition

The 5th edition of the Safer Internet Day will take place on 12 February 2008. Keeping with the tradition of the last few years, Insafe, the European network of internet safety awareness nodes, launches a Safer Internet Day 2008 Competition with the theme 'Life online is what YOU make of IT'.

Is the internet a positive or negative element in today’s world? Are mobile phones only about 'connecting people”? Can we believe everything we see on the internet? Do we behave differently online than in the 'physical” world? How does our behaviour impact on the online environment?

Young people are invited to express their ideas about these and other aspects of the virtual world and to work in groups and use their experience and creativity to illustrate their online reality. They should indicate the appropriate age category: 5-10 years, 11-14 years, or 15-19 years. The competition is open to schools, leisure clubs, youth groups, training institutes etc.
