The sponsors of the contest believe that young people know best how their friends and classmates are using the Internet and can craft the messages and the images that will resonate with their girl studying with laptop peers and help them stay safe online.
The contest is designed to be fun and educational.  Enter the New York State contest to become eligible for the national contest! Winners will be awarded in New York in early 2017. Winners will be submitted to the national contest for each grade-band (k-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9 -12).
