Our 2016 competition

The deadline of the international competition "Media, sure! But secure." is completed and numerous high-quality competition entries have been received by the jury members. The most beautiful project have been nominated by the jury and will be awarded at the Summit for Kids.
Information about the competition
Innovative ideas need creative minds to become reality. Creative minds need a forum that gives their ideas visibility. That’s what the competition “Media, sure! But secure.” is all about, for the third year running!
“Media, sure! But secure.” is looking for projects this year that promote media competency with zeal and resourcefulness. Has your group made a children’s video about online privacy? Did your activity day about cyber-bullying get children thinking and discussing about responsibility on the web? Your ideas have no limits. Your project only has to do one thing: encourage others to explore the digital world with children and young people together and find ways towards safe media use.
For the most exciting projects “Media, sure! But secure.” the competition offers a plattform. Nationally as well as Internationally! That’s because the competition awards for implemented projects and offers inspiration for new project ideas.

New to the contest this year: the Media Competency Test
For the first time as part of the contest, children and young people will have the opportunity to explore their own competence in dealing with digital media by taking the Media Competency Test developed by Teachtoday. The adult responsible for a learning group receives not only an assessment of the group’s competencies with media but also project ideas and inspiration for ways to participate in the contest.

Our Media Competency Test is a playful introduction for children ages 9–12 to learn how competent they are in dealing with digital media.
