Keep kids safe online – and win!

in News

To celebrate the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence, we’re giving Victorian eSmart Schools the chance to win some great prizes valued at $1,250, with a total prize pool of $10,000. The competition is being run in conjunction with the Victorian Government’s Department of Education and Training.

Keeping our children safe online needs a team effort between students, their families and schools. The Foundation’s CEO, Lesley Podesta, says that parents, in particular, need to be on board and involved.

Families’ involvement in bringing about change can do wonders in helping schools drive smart, safe and responsible online behavior"

To ensure that we’re all working together to build cyber safe families, we want to hear about all the great work Victorian eSmart schools are doing to educate parents and carers. Teachers, showcase how your school is engaging and educating families on cyber safety and be in the running to win:

  • A free Connect Workshop for Parents, run by expert facilitators, and valued at $500
  • A maximum of 25 eSmart Digital Licence for parents at the Connect session; and
  • A book voucher for the school library valued at $500


    (two prizes per term during 2018).

So, get creative, enter here at www.esmart.org.au/cybersafefamilies – but don’t forget to include the hashtag #CyberSafeFamiliesVIC!
