"What's Your Story?" Contest Winners

We challenged users around the world to create thought-provoking, creative, educational videos about staying safe and secure online and using the Internet responsibly. And users delivered.

Our third annual "What's Your Story?" video contest received some really fantastic entries from both individuals and schools in the U.S. and Canada. This year's categories included:

• Take action against bullying: How would you help a friend being bullied online?
• Keep a good rep online: What's the right way to share?
• Be cell smart: How can someone new to cell phones use them wisely?

And now for the winners!

The $10,000 grand prize went to a team from South Grand Prairie High School in Grand Prairie, Texas. Their video, titled "Choices," chronicled the tale of a teenager who faced a series of choices when it came to cell phone use-and discovered that choices have big consequences.
