Its back-to-school season and that means it’s time for another TELUS Wise footprint Comic Contest!
Now in its fourth year, the TELUS Wise footprint Comic Contest gives youth in grades 2-6 the opportunity to author a comic that speaks to good digital citizenship. Comic submissions should illustrate what it means to be a good digital citizen by showing how you can be kind online, sharing a tip on how to stay safe online, or providing an example of how you can use technology for good.
Below are the three themes for this year’s contest:
|Spread the love
For example: your grandparents live in another country and you love to stay connected with them, keeping them up to date on funny family stories and pictures of your loved ones.
|Stay safe online
For example: you want to download a new app, but first you ask your parents for permission to make sure the app is safe and ok for kids your age.
|Use tech for good
For example: you show your teacher a new online math game that you’ve been playing and you help make learning more fun for your classmates.
Create a comic using these examples, or even better, get creative! Think outside of the box and come up with your own storyline or example of what it means to be a good digital citizen. Check out the winning comics from last year for inspiration.
Comic submissions will be judged on Innovation and Creativity. The top three entrants will have their comic designed by a professional design team and posted to telus.com/wisefootprint for the public to vote on. The top three entrants will receive prize money of up to $3000 for their school and $500 for themselves! Prizing is based on number of votes received during the voting period.
Encourage the young people in your life to showcase their creative talents in the spirit of good digital citizenship and share the TELUS Wise footprint Comic Contest with your social network today.
