Make IT Happy, Make IT Safe

Dame Anne Begg, MP for Aberdeen South, is supporting the Make IT Happy competition, a UK-wide technology challenge for primary school students aged 9 to 11.

Dame Anne said “This year’s competition has been specially designed to help children use the internet safely and creatively. Staying safe online is an important skill even for primary age children, and the competition helps them learn how to make the most of the internet without putting themselves at risk.”

£1,200 will be awarded to each of the regional competition finalists, with the overall winning school taking home an additional cash prize of £4,000. Winners will also be invited to attend an awards ceremony to be held at the Houses of Parliament in London in June 2013.

The closing date for entries is April 6, 2013. For further information and details of how to enter, visit the website at http://makeithappy.cc4g.net/.
