Net Literacy, a student-founded digital literacy program, is giving Indianapolis Public Schools students a chance to speak out against online bullying and share their strategies for staying safe online.

If you had 30 seconds, what would you say to others about Internet safety? That’s the question IPS students can answer. And their answer could make them the star of their own public service announcement!

If they write one paragraph answering this question and e-mail it to IPSstudentsAgainstBullying@gmail.com, they will have a chance to have their idea scripted and storyboarded and they will get to star in their own public service announcement (PSA). That PSA will air on Bright House cable channels and will be posted on SafeConnects.org and on Net Literacy’s YouTube channel!

 
You can find out more about the competition here. All submissions must be in by October 15.

“The largest issue we have right now is cyberbullying,” said Tracy Pruitt, Coordinator of Support Services for IPS. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to get writing and get creative for this issue impacting them right now!

We’re sure our students can come up with some great answers to that important question, and we can’t wait to see some of them star in their very own PSA!
