Special Saturday post here because this is timely – the state of PA Attorney General’s office is doing a contest called Operation Safe Surf, to promote Internet safety for Pennsylvania teens.
The contest, co-sponsored by Microsoft and Comcast, is part of an initiative to keep kids safe on the Internet and was open to all Pennsylvania middle and high school students. Students were encouraged to help spread the word about online safety by producing a 30-second public service announcement.
Six regional semi-finalists, three from western Pennsylvania and three from eastern Pennsylvania, were chosen out of dozens of entries by a panel of judges. The finalists had the opportunity to travel to Harrisburg and put the finishing touches on their videos in a state-of-the-art production facility.
Internet voters pick the winner. Voters have until May 2 to pick a safety video.
