Rostelecom extends application deadline for internet safety competition

Rostelecom announced recently that it will continue to accept applications for participation in the second all-Russian "Child Safety on the Internet" competition until midnight on Dec. 25.

The competition, sponsored in part by Kaspersky Lab, is available to high school and college students and faculty. Participants can submit ideas for projects that provide educational online content to be accessed by children throughout Russia.

Submissions will be evaluated for three categories of awards: "About adult childish," "Internet of the future" and "Information without danger." Winners will be announced in February at an awards ceremony which will coincide with the All-Russian Safer Internet Week.

Application forms are available on the contest website, www.safe-internet.ru.
