Competition is one of the ways we thought we could engage our audience because children are our partners in producing the kind of content we put out. These inputs matter to Child Online Africa. It is against this background COA started the Safety and wellbeing competition expected to result in different formats of children’s perspective and expectations of safety and wellbeing within the ecosystem. By this approach, we encourage children to express themselves in writing, drawing, painting, and even in oral literature. The first of its kind saw the prize item of 2 Kindle tablets donated by World Reader but these tablets could not be redeemed by the prospective winners because of a technical challenge that marred the process of determining the winners. We hope this hitch could be cleared to allow for a transparent system next time.
