First
started in the United States in 2010 by Trend Micro’s Internet
Safety for Kids & Families program
, “What’s Your
Story?” comes to Hong Kong for the first time with the full support of the
Save the Children Hong Kong.  The

yourself safe online during the pandemic?” Video submissions will be
judged by a panel of experts on their ability to inspire, as well as how
effectively contestants have promoted their entries via social media.

contest is a unique opportunity for young people to tell us how they can make

creativity of the digital generation and encourages them to start and sustain a
positive, online dialogue with their peers.”

“Protecting
children from violence, exploitation and abuse on the internet is an important
priority for us,” said Carol Szeto, CEO of Save the Children Hong Kong. “With
the COVID-19 situation, children are inevitably spending more and more time in
the virtual world learning and connecting with others, and this poses greater
cyber risks to them. We are excited to partner with Trend Micro to roll out the
first ‘What’s Your Story?’ contest in Hong Kong, to further raise young people’s
awareness of online risks.”
