Unleash your inner artist and win massive cash prizes

The internet’s been around for a while and I can’t imagine life without it.  

So many good things have happened because of it: easy access to information, social networks, apps, YouTube videos, gaming, shopping, streaming music, raising awareness for great causes, and more.

But like anything else, it’s not perfect.  

There are trolls and hackers, ads we don’t care about, spam and fake news, and a lot less privacy.

And now more than ever, it seems it’s harder to tell who you can trust and what’s actually true online.

Don’t get me wrong.  

We all love the internet.  

But there’s room for it to get better.  

So, if you could change one thing about the internet, what would it be?  And how would you do it?

The What’s Your Story? poster competition is proudly supported by Techday and is open to kids aged 5 to 12 years.

Regional Winners from each of the regions will receive a prize consisting of a $1,500 cheque plus a Home Network Security unit and a 24-month Maximum Security product
