Childnet Wins ISPA Award

At the UK Internet Industry ISPA AWARDS last night, Childnet’s “Kidsmart” project was announced the winner of the Special Internet Watch Foundation Award for developments in online safety.

The award was presented to Childnet for producing an engaging and effective website which helps communicate to both children, parents and teachers the importance of online safety. The judges praised the resources on the site which include special classroom activity plans, drama, an online role play, leaflets and posters, as well as an online seminar and advice for parents.

Stephen Carrick-Davies, from Childnet says,

The production of the Kidsmart resources has been a whole team effort and we are enormously grateful to the Internet Watch Foundation for recognising this educational resource. We want to thank the Kidsmart sponsors – Cable & Wireless and the Department for Education and Skills - for their ongoing support and backing and we look forward to continuing to work closely with all sectors within the Internet Industry to ensure that children get the most out of the Internet and stay smart and safe online.

The Rt. Hon. Stephen Timms MP, Minister of State for E-Commerce and Competitiveness, was the keynote speaker at the event. See full list of ISPA winners at www.ispaawards.org.uk/pressreleases/ISPAsWinners.doc
