More about this years question

Let’s face it. We can’t live without the internet. So much of what we do every day is online. We go online to learn something new, be entertained, chat with friends and family, get homework done, find out what’s happening in the world and so much more. It’s hard to imagine what life was like before the internet came along.

But life online is also far from perfect. There are ways that people behave on it, things you find on it, or maybe just the way that it works that are less than ideal. For you, for people you care about or for everyone in the world.

So, if you could have one special power that would make life online much better, what would it be?

Be funny. Be dramatic. Be creative.  Use live action, stop action, animation, original music or none. Whatever you do, be real.
