myprivacy & me Video PSA Contest Deadline
Date:
Postmark your video no later than Friday, December 10, 2010.
Location:
National
Description:
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner (OPC) is inviting young people between the ages of 12 and 18 to create their own public service announcement (PSA) on the issue of privacy. Privacy is a growing concern, particularly among young people. The OPC is encouraging young people to create their own video PSA which will inform other youth about current privacy issues and the importance of protecting one's personal information. The ultimate goal of their PSA should be to encourage other young people to critically think about how their personal information is collected and used everyday, and how their privacy can be compromised.
