Competition to Create Game/App or Animation/Video to deliver e-safety message and promote positive uses of digital technology

esafetycomp2016logoIt’s competition time! The 2016 Central E-Safety competition for children & young people in Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannan Council areas is to Create a Game/App or an Animation/Video to help deliver a strong e-safety message and promote positive uses of digital technology. And there are some neat prizes for winners! Prizes include tablet devices, lock-and-play gaming sessions, online subscriptions, t-shirts, cinema tickets and more!

Help celebrate great uses of the Internet and mobile technology, and promote tips for keeping safe online and in using mobile devices by creating an app/game or animation/video to help children and young people better understand about the positives of sharing online but also the dangers of inappropriate sharing, as well as how to avoid making hurtful comments online.

Age 16-18

Entries can be from individuals or groups of children and young people – in the event of the group being of different ages the entry must be in the category for the eldest member of the group.

Send your entry (or a link to your entry if stored online elsewhere) via email to CEP@glowmail.org.uk. This may be a link to the created /animation video hosted elsewhere (such as YouTube). Make sure you include details of the names of who created the song or rap, the age category, and where you’re from (either school name or the area in the Forth Valley area entrants are from).

What you’ll win

There will be a range of exciting prizes. Prizes include tablet devices, lock-and-play gaming sessions, online subscriptions, t-shirts, cinema tickets and more.
