Safer Internet Day 2018
In partnership with Warwickshire Police, to mark Safer Internet Day 2018 (Tuesday 6th February), we are running an written piece competition based on the two main themes of International Safer Internet Day:
- Respect Online
Details on how to apply can be found here.
What You Need To Do
Write a creative piece – maybe a poem, a song or rap, or a short story piece – based on either, or both, of the themes outlined above.
Your entry should encourage other young people to be safe on the internet – whether they’re using their phone, a gaming system or a computer. So can you tell us what children and young people should think about, or what they should know, to be safer online?
Your entry must be up to (but no more than) 200 words and must be your own
work. You will need to write or type your entry on a sheet of A4 paper (unless you’re
entering online). Please write clearly. Remember to put your name, age, address and school on the back of your entry, so we know it is yours.
If your piece of creative writing is picked as one of three top entries in your age category, you’ll win:
- 1st prize – £100 voucher / 2nd prize – £50 voucher / 3rd prize – £25 voucher
- A special behind-the-scenes police experience
- A tour of the Wasps RFC ground at the Ricoh Arena.
- Winning entries will also be published on our websites (including Twitter and Facebook).
