Fun video contest for Net users (& producers) 13+

Hey, aspiring filmmakers and video producers (in Canada and the US), here’s a project for you: Produce a two-minute video about Internet safety with your videocam, cellphone, or Webcam, and enter it in TrendMicro’s “What’s Your Story?” contest (you have to be 13 or older). Choose from one of four topics: “Keeping a good rep online” (and avoiding TMI), “Staying clear of unwanted contact” (e.g., dealing with bullies), “Accessing (legal) content that’s age-appropriate,” and “Keeping the cybercriminals out” (ID theft, scams, phishers, etc.), my ConnectSafely co-director Larry Magid reports at CNET. The grand prize is $10,000 and the deadline is April 30. Humor’s just fine. Here’s the official site where you can upload your video. Because TrendMicro is one of our supporters, I get to be one of the judges, so have fun!

    Thanks for telling us, Fraser – could you post a URL for that 10th-grader's video? Would be fun to see. Best,

    Sorry that it isn't available on this side of the Atlantic, but it would be great to see the resulting videos.
    I'm currently using one in my school assemblies that was published by a boy in 10th Grade as homework!
    Kids love it and it says what I would, only better.
