Internet Safety Video Contest winners announced

ELK GROVE - Winners of the Elk Grove Unified School District's (EGUSD) Internet Safety Video Contest have been announced. Students in grades 4-12 were invited to produce a video that promotes the safe and ethical use of the Internet. Winners were selected at the elementary, middle and high school levels.

The contest, in collaboration with the U.S. Attorney's Office, is a component of the district's Internet Safety Initiative involving an approach to educate staff, parents and students about cyberbulling, online predator strategies and other online safety issues.

The initiative includes professional development and parent classes about Internet safety and Web 2.0 technology, an Internet safety blog and cyber ethics for staff.

The students were recognized at the EGUSD Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, January 18, 2011.

Their 5th album "Stand Up Man, was relased in 2009 to critical acclaim and made the Euro-American charts while their song, "Divorce Number One" charted on Southern Thunder Radio.

For a limited time, by emailing Langston in advance, you can buy a show ticket and choose either a t-shirt or CD to go along with a purchased ticket.
