Films made by children about how they use they internet

Childnet is an organisation that works directly with children, parents and teachers to help make the internet a great and safe place for children.

This year they invited all UK schools and youth organisations to enter their film-making challenge. Two separate projects for primary and secondary aged children looked at themes and key messages from Safer Internet Day 2013.

  • Primary aged children who entered the competition were challenged to create a 60 second film to say why they think ‘The internet is great, when you respect your mates.’

  • Secondary aged entrants were asked to create a 2 minute film about ‘How do you connect with respect?’

In July, all the finalists were invited to see their film shown in a cinema to the Childnet judging panel at the British Film Institute in London, where they were awarded some fantastic prizes for their school or youth group.
