International CyberFair -- Youth Empowering Communities to Prepare for the Future

[City, State], ([date, month, year]) -- [School/Organization Name] has joined students all over the globe in highlighting a unique aspect of our community as a part of International Schools CyberFair, sponsored by the GlobalSchoolNet.org. CyberFair encourages youth to connect the knowledge they learn in school to real world applications.

The theme for CyberFair 2018 is "Preserve & Unite!"

"Preserving our heritage is a vital link to our cultural, educational, aesthetic, inspirational, and economic legacies.."
- Steve Berry

In partnership with the World Future Society, youth are asked to share their dreams for the future - by thinking about the possible future, the probable future, the preferable future and the preventable future.

Endorsed by the White House, the contest encourages students to become ambassadors for their communities, conducting research, working with community members and using technology tools to publish a website that displays their learning. Touted as the largest international cyber event for schools, the annual contest involves more than two million students from 45,500 schools across 115 countries. [School/Organization Name] is participating in the category of [Category Name].

[This paragraph should include specific information about your page. Which class participated? Which category did they pick? Why was it important to them? Any funny stories about the process....any pertinent information...how many people have seen the site? Let the press know it was something done locally, which has achieved global exposure.]

[Include a quote from one of your students about his or her involvement with the project. Did he/she discover anything interesting while researching the topic? ]

In addition to the cyber entries, judging for the competition also takes place online. Students review the projects of other schools by using a web-based evaluation tool designed by Global SchoolNet. The top forty entries are then reviewed by a panel of international judges, representing six continents, to determine the winners.
