We are proud to have selected the winners of the 3rd annual What’s Your Story? online safety video contest.  With again some great entries and engagement from youth in the US & Canada, the 2012 judges panel gathered at our Cupertino, CA offices to view and decide the winners from a group of 30 finalists.  You can view all winners here.

A big thanks goes to our judging panel and supporting organizations for helping to spread the word and pick our winners.  A complete list of judges can be seen here.

And congratulations to all of the 2012 contestants for the hard work and effort they put into this year’s contest.  Unlike other video contests, the work does not stop with creating the video (which is plenty). It’s just as important to become an advocate for this cause (and your own entry) by getting your friends, family, and community to view, rate and comment on your work.

This year, the $10,000 grand prize went to the video club of South Grand Prairie High School, in Grand Prairie, TX.  

Their video called “Choices”, depicts a young man, his cell phone, and the decisions he makes using it, from the time he gets his first one up to a critical moment in his life.  It creatively addressed numerous issues (from bullying to sexting to texting wisely) in less than 2 minutes.
