WiredKids Summit - May 27, 2010

Senate Dirksen Building, Room G-50 , Washington D.C.

The summit is given each year entirely by Tweenangels and Teenangels. They give awards to their favorite sites and to people they recognize have made the Internet safer. Kids on the stage, adults in the audience; industry, policymakers, law enforcement. They present research they conduct and teach adults what they need to know.

Often cybersafety messages come from the top down, parents to kids. But almost as often the kids know more about technology than their parents. Every year this summit is given on Capitol Hill, giving the teens and tweens a chance to show leaders in industry and government how much they know.

Just a few of the amazing kids at the Wired Kids Summit. They presented their research on what is really going on with kids and technology. This included topics on Cyberbullying, sexting, and when it's ok (or if its ok) to swear at a video game.
