Safer Internet Day is a global day of action to build a safer digital world for children and young people.
This is the 21st edition of the campaign and will be held on Tuesday, 6 February with the theme ‘Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online’.
The aim of the day is to raise awareness of emerging online issues and current concerns, prompting conversations about how we can use the internet safely and respectfully.
It’s a day to encourage parents, carers, teachers, government, policymakers, and the wider online safety industry to take time to listen to children and young people and make positive change together not just for one day, but all year round.
In support of Safer Internet Day 2024, we are inviting children and young people to use their creativity to highlight the importance of having meaningful conversations about online safety.
We are looking for entries which nod to the campaign theme in the form of a song, poem, poster or video (and anything else in between!).
The winning entry for each age category (age 7-11 and age 12 -18) will be shared on Surrey Police's channels and win a £25 Amazon voucher! (Funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey)
