How smart and tech savvy is the young generation? To find answers and to encourage young students to be safe and Internet-friendly, Google India has announced the launch of the second edition of the Web Rangers contest. The competition is open to students across the country within the age group of 10 and 17 years.

In its second year, the competition aims to encourage school students to highlight the importance of Internet safety and be good digital citizens. Students across the country are invited to create, innovate and submit their creative ideas in various categories in the form of entries ranging from a comprehensive Internet safety campaign, to a project involving a video, website, app or even design a poster to educate and spread awareness around digital safety.

“Last year, children from across the country amazed us with their innovative and inspiring submissions. We can’t wait to see what the students have in store for us. The contest is a platform to enable these young adults to become good digital citizens and empower their friends and families to have a safer and meaningful digital experience, ” said Sunita Mohanty, director, trust and safety at Google.

Last year, the competition received hundreds of entries across schools in the form of sketches, cartoons, videos and apps. The deadline for submitting entries for this year’s contest is January 5, 2017. Winners in each of these categories stand to win Chromebooks and tablets.
