Google has announced a new initiative in NZ for 14-17 year olds in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

NetSafe and Google NZ have teamed up to launch New Zealand’s first Web Rangers programme. This initiative offers a practical way to help address cyber-bullying and promote digital citizenship www.netsafe.org.nz/webrangers.
 
The Web Rangers programme invites teens to create a public campaign that will help your peers think about their online behaviour and keep each other safe online. Around 200 young people will be invited to take part in the project, attending workshops during the school holidays in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in May, and receive training from experts in online safety, marketing and social media. 
You will have six weeks to produce their campaigns, which can take any form including YouTube videos and other social media content, billboards, and in-school events. The creators of the top internet safety campaigns from each city will head to Sydney to present their campaign to Google executives.  
More on the blog here. We're extending sign-ups for another few days so would love your help on getting more people signed up.
Here's how I'd like your help:
  • Do you know any 14-17 year olds who you think would be great for the program? Please let them know and have them
