It’s time to put your superhero capes on because the Web Rangers contest is back for its third edition and we couldn’t be happier announcing it on Children’s day. But who is a Web Ranger? If you are a student between the age of 10 and 17 who knows what it takes to be safe online and also helps your friends and family to do the same, then you are already a Web Ranger.
The Web Rangers contest is a platform for students to spread the message of internet safety and digital citizenship beyond close friends and family. It’s time to show the world your superpowers, it’s time for Web Rangers 2017!
There are different formats to pick from - choose the category that interests you and and put your creativity and skills to test. The best entries in each format stands to win awesome Chromebooks.
- Campaign: Why reach a few hundred when you can reach thousands, or maybe millions? Run your own internet safety campaign, either individually or as a team of three. It could be one large initiative or a collection of multiple projects like a social media campaign, a video series, awareness drives or all of them - there is no restriction on the format or the number of initiatives.
- Project: If you prefer to work individually and have that one amazing idea, then this is for you. The format is completely open - create a video, website, app or a game - but remember, it should empower users to stay safe on the Internet and learn what it takes to be a good digital citizen
- Poster: Put your creative hat on - design a poster that captures the theme of Internet safety and send it across to us. It’s as simple as that.
Year after year, the Web Rangers have been surprising us with some incredible entries and we have a hunch that this year is going to be even better. For inspiration and ideas, check out the winning entries from last year and the year before that. To learn more about the rules and format, or to submit your entries, visit this page. The deadline for submitting your entry is 23:59pm on January 15, 2018.
