We are delighted to announce that we are once again running our poster competition to highlight Safer Internet Day. The theme for this year’s event is “Together for a better Internet” and so we’re inviting pupils across the South East to put their heads together to come up with posters which raise awareness of the importance of Internet safety – and possibly win a shiny new Chromebook or digital camera for the school.
The poster competition is open to pupils from ages 4 – 11 and the deadline for entries is 28th February. The entries can be drawn, painted, collaged or even designed on a computer. The judges will be looking for creative and interesting designs which effectively deliver the key messages of Safer Internet Day.
In previous years, we’ve had dozens of entries from schools right across the South East and we’re looking forward to looking at all the posters again this year. If you need a bit of a nudge to get you started, the UK Safer Internet Centre has a fantastic page of resources about Safer Internet Day including education packs, tips for parents and carers as well as children and the opportunity to register as a supporter and put your school on the map.
Entries should be sent via the school. Please send your creations to firstname.lastname@example.org, give to a JSPC Technician or post to JSPC Computer Services, Units 1-3 Seadown Parade, Bowness Avenue, Sompting, West Sussex, BN15 9TP by 28th February 2019.
