The Internet can be a wonderful resource for researching information, communicating with friends, shopping for hard to find items, and for simple entertainment. It can also be a dangerous world for children and adults, who are not prepared for the dangers that await.
Your local City Council has chosen you, based on your knowledge of Internet Safety & Awareness and your creativity with Digital Media, to create an original Internet Safety & Awareness Comic Book about Cyberbullying, Identity Theft or Sexting, that you can share with your classmates (students your age or younger).
