PCs Made Simple and LV= Streetwise are working together to keep children safe from internet dangers ... helping to alert younger users, parents and teachers of the risks of social networking.
To highlight the need for vigilance, they have announced an under 12s art competition to design an ‘internet safety’ themed laptop wrap - with great prizes generously donated by PCs Made Simple Ltd.
Alison Shelton, manager at the charity says “the internet is a wonderful learning and leisure resource for children. However, there are risks that everyone needs to be aware of and avoid through responsible use.
Here at LV=Streetwise we are dedicated to raising awareness of how to stay safe so we are inviting children and parents to play our online internet safety game www.LVStreetwiseChat.org.uk where they can learn about the S.M.A.R.T. Rules in our simulated chatroom. Knowing the dangers means that children can then knowledgably enter our art competition and tell everyone else about them.”
Dorset’s Chief Fire Officer, Darran Gunter, also an LV=Streetwise trustee, will present the winner of this unique competition with an Acer One netbook wrapped with their winning design in their own school assembly - just before Christmas! The winner will also be given the opportunity to take their whole class on a trip to their local fire station.
Clifford Johnson of PCs Made Simple Ltd is keen to support the charity’s work as he has three young children of his own. He is donating a
netbook and a Laptop, one for the competition winner and one to LV=Streetwise. Both will be wrapped with the winning design. He will also be donating a 2GB memory stick to each of the five runners up.
