Microsoft Encourages Teens to Take the Online Challenge!

MSChallengeAre you a parent concerned about your teens safety online?  Your teen tells you not to worry, they claim they are fine?  Challenge them!

Microsoft makes it easy for parents—and offers incentive with great prizes every teen wants!

The Safer Online Teen Challenge is an interactive contest where teens can teach others how to manage their digital lifestyle by creating a song, video, skit or other original work. It’s a perfect way for teens to put their own spin on how they navigate digital safety.

Here’s how it works:

• Teens ages 13 to 18 (where applicable), select an online safety topic from either the Microsoft Safety & Security Center or the “Resources” tab of the Safer Online by Microsoft Facebook page.
• They create their work of art (using one of Microsoft’s five categories: skit/presentation, video, story/cartoon, song, survey) and submit their entry by April 12 on the Challenge website.
• Then, Microsoft’s Safer Online Facebook fans will vote to select the winners of each category. Microsoft will post the winning entries on their website and the winners will receive prizes like tablets, gaming systems and more.

Check out the prizes!  Follow the Microsoft Safety Team on Twitter.

You have the opportunity to win cool prizes! One first and one second prize will be awarded in each category.
