This Year’s Theme:

“We are connecting to the internet in more ways than ever, so what would you do to make the internet a safer place?”

The internet’s been around for a while and we can’t imagine life without it.  So many good things have happened because of it: easy access to information, social networks, apps, YouTube videos, gaming, shopping, streaming music, raising awareness for great causes, and more.

But like anything else, it’s not perfect.  There are trolls and hackers, ads we don’t care about, spam and fake news, and a lot less privacy.  And now more than ever, it seems it’s harder to tell who you can trust and what’s actually true online.

Don’t get us wrong.  We all love the internet.  But there’s room for it to get better.  So, if you could change one thing about the internet, what would it be?  And how would you do it?
