I'm an Educated Dude

by Saad Sifate, George Strawbridge, and David Oladejo, of Ottawa, Ontario

It's so easy to get carried away by the tragic stories about victims of cyber bullying or the negative activities that occur on the Internet every day. In our video we wanted to encourage the fact that the Internet still has a positive side, and continues to impact our generation through education and communication.

The Legend of the Responsible Gamer

by Ripley Union Lewis Huntington High School, of Ripley, Ohio

We wanted to do something original, yet familiar, which led us to create this video featuring students James Setty and Jarrod Meyer. Kids today socialize on a grand scale with the internet. It’s important to teach kids that being kind online is the way to go.

The Internet Helped Me.

Runner up winner: Individual

The Internet Helped Me.

by Matt Serra, Jacksonville, North Carolina

A lot of the time, we take for granted the GOOD side of the Internet because we tend to focus more on the bad side. When used correctly though, the Internet is a fun, yet powerful way to connect and enjoy with other people. See how it has helped me. :) I wanted to tell my story in an interesting and creative way, so I chose stop-motion animation.

Lemonade

by Micah Bartel, Lake Oswego, Oregon

The world benefits a lot from the internet. There are too many reasons to list, but from my video’s standpoint, the internet is for creating and connecting. It can be used to create many great things and host positive interactions for many. Our focus was not only on the economical benefits, but to also show that individuals have the ability to put themselves out there and be heard.

Good Digital Citizenship

Runner up winner: School

Good Digital Citizenship

by The Meadowbrook School of Weston, MA

We have talked a lot with our students about the importance of being the same good kids online that they are in their everyday face to face interactions - and the fact that it is not always easy. Our hope is that we are putting our students in a position to prevent their own (and their friends') Internet mishaps.

CHOICES

Grand Prize!

CHOICES

By SGP Video Club, South Grand Prairie High School, Grand Prairie, TX

"When we decided to enter this contest, we thought about what it means to be safe and responsible online. We realized it all comes down to the decisions we make. We hope people will think about all the decisions they face when they use a cell phone. Sometimes a small decision can have a big impact. If you make good choices, you'll be ok."

Rhymes for these online times

Created By Therese D'Souza

"I think there is a need for more positive content on the web. And while bullying is a serious concept, I wanted my video to be different and convey a meaningful message in a light-hearted way. Although there can be a lot of negative content on the Internet, I wanted to encourage others to have a positive influence online."

Be the Difference

Individual winner: Take action against bullying

Be the Difference

By Drew Hollering

"I work with 5th through 8th graders in after school programs, and I think a lot of times kids don't realize the impact bullying can have on a person. I feel like it's really important to understand how simple it can be sometimes to help someone get through a situation if they are having a hard time."

I Love Sharing

Individual winner: Keep a good rep online

I Love Sharing

By Khalil Jammal And Silvia Koshkarian

"We felt online safety was not emphasized as much as cyberbullying or being a good citizen online. We have heard of countless people getting their computers hacked and information stolen. So we decided to show some of the things that can be taken from you if you share too much online."

You Can't Rewind What's Online

School winner: Keep a good rep online

You Can't Rewind What's Online

By Samantha Oliveras, Jazmine Santiago, And Natalia Diaz, Herbert H. Lehman High School, Bronx, NY

"We've seen our own peers go with their emotions online rather than thinking before they post and not realizing what they post is permanent. We wanted people to know that you can't take it back. We also wanted people to see that good friends can help stop us from making a mistake online. We could all be that friend to someone, too."

Simple As That

Individual winner: Be cell smart

Simple As That

By Carissa Lee, Carina Lee, And Chris Shen

"Even though bullying is an important and serious topic, we felt like being cell smart is a topic that is often overlooked. We wanted to create something refreshing and simple, to lighten the mood and give the viewers something fun to watch."

Cell Scare

School winner: Be cell smart

Cell Scare

By Harry Kim, Herbert H. Lehman High School, Bronx, NY

"My inspiration for this video was a good friend who had just gotten his first phone and used it unwisely. The video all came together because of the hard work of all the students involved. I hope it will entertain and influence viewers about cell phone safety."
