This is a special week for children in India, and we’re excited to celebrate it with the launch of the second edition of the Web Rangers contest. What is a Web Ranger you may ask? They’re kids who know all about staying smart, safe and savvy online — and helping their friends and family do the same.
If you’re a student between 10 and 17 years old, sign up here and then get ready to dazzle us with your creativity in highlighting the importance of Internet safety and being good digital citizens. Whether you have one or many great ideas, there’s a way you can participate.Winners in each of these categories stand to win Chromebooks and tablets.
- Campaign: Reach out to hundreds — or even thousands! — through a comprehensive Internet safety campaign. A campaign is a collection of initiatives that you can run through the contest period. For example, a series of road shows, an awareness drive at school, and a video series combined will qualify as a campaign. You’re free to use any format and there is no restriction on the number of initiatives. Surprise us! The more people you reach, the higher your chances of winning. You can get together as a team of 3, or even work on this individually.
- Project: If you have one great idea that you want to work on, then this is for you. The format is completely open - it could be a video, website, app or anything that you like that highlights the importance of Internet safety and being a good digital citizen
- Poster: Design a poster on the theme of Internet safety and send it across to us. It’s as simple as that.
We were blown away by the entries we received in last year’s competition, so we’re looking forward to even more exciting ideas this year.
