Secure Internet: the Best Video Competion of Cyber Security has been Concluded
Today the RA Ministry of Education and Science has summed up the video competition on cyber security among students and youth for “Secure Internet” week. Congratulating to all the winners, RA Minister of Education and Science, Arayik Harutyunyan, noted and added, “A series of events, called "Secure Internet", started last week which instructs students, through lectures, on how to have skills to avoid unwanted context and be protected against cyberthreats. I think it is necessary to follow those rules throughout the whole year. I would like to thank the committee of the competition, as it is really hard to choose the best 5 videos out of 170 submitted. We are glad to have winners from different age groups who are students, teenagers and youth”.
The Committee member of the competition, Samvel Martirosyan, has stated that “Secure Internet” week is very important. “Today, children are more defenseless, and adults don’t realize that children need protection. I should mention that there are already video-bloggers at schools and in universities, and usually grownups are unaware of this newly created culture. It was really hard choosing the best ones, but I would like to emphasize some criterias which were to be considered. First, we left out many videos where the plot, shots, and frames didn’t belong to the authors. We prefered videos containing independent and creative elements, which might have lacked qualitative shots and sound, but were unique and interesting”, noted Samvel Martirosyan underlining that spots for awards were few.
During the event, Minister Arayik Harutyunyan handed Letters of Appreciation the producers of the best 5 videos, as well as prizes provided by the UCOM company and the STEM Union.
Let us note that the theme of the video should have been related to cybersecurity, from personal data protection on social networks to cyberbullying.
The maximum age of the participants was 25. The best videos will be screened at schools and be posted on the Ministry of Education and Science website and on their Facebook page.
The award winners of the best videos are:
