Coming to Schools Across New Hampshire -Web Safety
Is your school preparing for new standards in student educational website use?  New Hampshire is one of the first states to begin organizing and implementing higher standards to protect student safety on the web. School districts manage personally identifiable information about students in accordance with the federal laws known as the Family Educational Rights Privacy Act (FERPA) and Children’ Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) which  imposes certain requirements on operators of websites or online services directed to children under 13 years of age. Because students have to be at least 13 years old to participate in the Awards, artandwriting.org, is not directed to children under 13.

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, a nonprofit organization, in partnership with local affiliates.  The Alliance takes student online safety and privacy very seriously.  Students must be at least 13 years old when they submit to the Awards, regardless of grade level.  This reflects heightened community sensitivity to the collection of personal information from pre-teen children, even by non-profit organizations like the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers who are not subject to the federal children’s privacy laws that restricts collection of that information.

Many New Hampshire school websites will now list approved third party school service providers that teachers may uses in their classrooms.  The Alliance is not a school service provider which means artandwriting.org may not be included in these lists, but that won’t prevent your students from participating in the Scholastic Awards!
To participate, each student should create an account at artandwriting.org. A parent or guardian will need to sign a submission form for each entry to indicate they accept Scholastic Awards participating terms.  To learn more about our Participation Terms or Privacy Policy visit artandwriting.org/participation-terms or artandwriting.org/privacy.

Should you need additional permission for your students to participate I have included a permission form template that you can customize for your students at your school.  Refer to the download section of ORS to access the template.
