The Nebraska Educational Service Units (ESUs) held their annual Digital Citizenship Symposium online again this year!  The outreach was greater than ever because of the flexibility of the online delivery of digital citizenship content.

The materials, which were available on the Nebraska Digital Citizenship Symposium website, included information and activities for grades K-4, 5-6, and 7-12. Bobby Truhe of KSB School Law and teachers/students from Lincoln Public Schools recorded videos this year that students and teachers could access online. The team of ESU leaders who facilitated the event were very pleased with the participation. The Nebraska DCS website was visited over 9,400 times from September through March by people from all over Nebraska, 24 states, and 7 other countries!

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 149 contest entries,19 medal winners were selected and announced in April.

Centura Public School had multiple winners in this year’s contest. In the K-2 Poster division  Michael Moeller received first place and Kalli Knuth earned second place. Sam Hadenfeldt was the third place winner, while Thomas McDonald received fourth place. In the grade 3-5 poster division Mercy McDonald earned second place; Karly Suntych and Jax Cambell received third place; and Honorable Mention went to Sophie Shroeder, Kristen Cochnar, and Natalia Schultz. Samuel Hostetler won second place in the grade 6-8 Public Service Announcement division. Congratulations to all the winners!
