The participants of the main event connected live with IES Las Canteras in Collado Villalba (Madrid), where students had a talk about the safe and responsible use of ICT.

This year, the Spanish SIC organised a contest to promote coexistence and respect on the internet through a video with music, dance and advice on cybersecurity and safe use of ICT.

The Carlos Bousoño school in Boal (Asturias), which participated with the slogan "Do it with moderation, for a secure internet!", surprised the jury with this great video.
