What’s Your Story? is an poster contest that empowers youth to be leaders in educating others about being safe, responsible, and successful online. First launched in 2011 in USA and Canada, it offers youth a voice; encouraging them to participate in solving issues about being online. Students address a specific question or topic each year and must reach as wide an audience as possible with their message.
In 2019, the contest ran in Australia and New Zealand for the 6th year and awarded $13,000 in cash prizes to students aged 8 – 12 years and the schools that the students attended. Each year the finalists are determined by a public vote, with the final winners being judged by the likes of Twitter, Netsafe, Stay Smart Online and the Office of the eSafety Commissioner.
Stay tuned, as the What’s Your Story? contest will be back in the second half of 2020. Sign up now to get updates on the next contest.
