DENVER (LAWFUEL) – Troy A. Eid, United States Attorney for the District of Colorado, in conjunction with the Colorado Internet Safety Foundation, announced that over 130 students and educators representing school districts from throughout Colorado will be attending the Teen Summit Event, scheduled to take place in Denver on October 21, 2008. The event will focus on teaching students and educators to train others in their community about online safety.
The Teen Summit event will be held at the Old Supreme Court Building in Denver at 8:30 am on October 21, 2008. Participation in the event will prepare students to teach other students about the dangers of the internet, cyberbullying, safe social networking, appropriate online gaming behavior, and how to stay safe from online predators.
During the event, students will hear from speakers such as Attorney General John Suthers, Representative Nancy Todd, as well as speakers from the FBI, Web Wise Kids, MySpace, and Qwest’s Incredible Internet Project. The students will also participate in roundtable discussions with Colorado legislators and will develop action plans on how to implement the training they have received to help teach other students about internet safety.
“Thanks to this collaborative effort, students from across Colorado will be safer as they surf the Internet,” said United States Attorney Troy Eid.
The Teen Summit event is made possible by the tremendous efforts of the Internet Safety Foundation.
