Ariyah Ross and Kiera Wiese Win Digital Citizenship Contest!

The Nebraska Educational Service Units (ESUs) held their annual Digital Citizenship Symposium online again this year!  

The content, which was available on the Nebraska Digital Citizenship Symposium website, included information and activities for grades K-4, 5-6, and 7-12. 

The Nebraska DCS website was visited over 4,100 times from October through April by people from all over Nebraska, 8 states, and 5 other countries. Students had the opportunity to earn a certificate of completion for their grade level content, which included Media Balance, Making Good Decisions, and Creation Over Consumption.  Almost 600 certificates were awarded to students successfully completing the unit assessments.

The ESU group also hosted a statewide Digital Citizenship Message Contest. Students were invited to submit a Digital Citizenship poster or a Public Service Announcement communicating something they had learned. Students in grades K-12 submitted entries online and were judged in four grade group categories. Of the 132 contest entries, 21 award winners were selected and announced in April. 

Leigh Community Schools had 2 winners this year! Seventh-graders Kiera Wiese and Ariyah Ross won the first place medal for the Grade 6-8 Public Service Announcement (PSA) Contest. Also in that division, Sadie Brabec, Lainey Urban, and Matelyn Rayback earned second place. Their teacher is Jennifer Remmereid.  

 “Digital devices are in the hands of most youth these days,” Ms. Remmereid said. “I think it is important for students to understand the importance of digital citizenship. This was a fun activity to confirm that our students are staying cyber smart and being positive leaders in our digital lives.”

Kiera Wiese said, “We learned to be responsible, respectful, and safe online, and it was satisfying to know we received an award for our work!”
