Overall School Winner 2014: My poster depicts Princess Ariel as a user of social media. She can be ‘Part Of The World’ as she is connected to everyone through the Internet.
The positive thing about the internet is that it can help you with anything at all. Contacting your friends, getting help with homework, researching information – everything is possible with the internet
We got our inspiration for our poster from the online math challenge website ‘Manga High’. We entered this competition online and it shows us one of the many good sides to the internet. We really enjoyed making this poster as a class and everyone contributed something special to it. Our teacher Mrs Gavin was a great help to the project as she helped us to enter the poster into ‘Whats Your Sory’.
When my mom told me about this I thought she said fun on the net and not the internet – so I drew a poster of me playing with a net. When she told me it was about the internet I drew butterflies with Facebook, iTunes, Twitter wifi and Skype, all the things I use to have fun on the net

Overall School Winner 2013: Our approach was to inspire many young people who watched our video about the good side of the internet! We tried to make it as fun, catchy and creative as much as possible. We’re sending a message out to many young people to try their best at what they are good at, to never give up! Once you love what you are doing the sky’s the limit!

We wanted to show how much we love the internet in our lives. We used the white boards so that we could each give our individual thoughts and we added the rap because it was fun. We found our music and our morse code on the internet. We enjoyed working as a team to make this video (under pressure!).
