Safer Internet Day 2019
Calling all creative writing geniuses in Warwickshire, aged from 6 to 17 years old!
In partnership with Warwickshire Police, to mark Safer Internet Day 2019 (Tuesday 5th February), we are re-running our written piece competition, focusing on sharing respect online and #BeCyberKind
What To Do
We want young people across Warwickshire to write a creative piece – whether a poem, song, rap, or a short story piece – based on respect and being kind online.
- Entries must be no longer than 200 words each, and must be your own work.
- There are three age categories: 6 to 8, 9 to 11 and 12+.
- The competition opens on Safer Internet Day 2019 (Tuesday 5 February).
- All entries must be received by 5pm on Thursday 28 February 2019.
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.
Your entry should be posted (together with a completed consent form) to:
Warwickshire Safer Internet Day 2019 Competition,
PO Box 4, Leek Wootton,
Or email it to SID2019@warwickshire.pnn.police.uk
