Trend Micro conducts What's Your Story contest
Ottawa-based security software company Trend Micro has begun a contest promotion called "What's Your Story?" The contest invites young people and schools in Canada and the US to submit videos offering advice for people who are getting online for the first time. Submissions will be judged on their inspirational qualities, as well as the amount of social media support they attract. One school and one individual entrant will each win grand prizes of $10,000.
"The contest is a unique opportunity for young people to tell us how they can make the Internet a better place," said Lynette Owens, global director of the Internet Safety for Kids & Families program at Trend Micro. "'What's Your Story' celebrates the savviness and creativity of the digital generation and encourages them to start and sustain a positive online dialogue with their peers."
The contest is being supported with a website at <http://whatsyourstory.trendmicro.com>. The winners will be announced in May.
