Del Webb Students Win FBI Competition

Del Webb Middle School won the FBI-SOS (Safe Online Surfing) Internet Challenge 6th Grade National Championship for the month of January 2011.

The monthly program, which runs each school year from September through May, is a free educational program that delivers critical Internet safety information in a fun, competitive format to students in grades 3-8, with a separate monthly challenge for each grade level. The goal of the program is to provide students with knowledge about how to avoid dangerous situations on the internet, specifically internet predators. Each month, students from registered schools take an online pre-quiz, learning about internet safety in the scavenger hunt and then taking an online quiz. At the end of each month, six trophies (one for each grade level) are awarded to the schools with the highest scoring students on the FBI-SOS Post-Quiz.

The students posted the best score in the country amongst 6th graders to claim the highly-coveted national award. A total of 1279 sixth-grade grade students from 41 schools in 20 different states participated in January. Del Webb is the first school in Clark County to earn this prestigious award.

Under the guidance of computer teachers Georgia Snyder and Pam Dusseau, the 6th-graders produced the top cumulative results on the FBI-SOS Internet Challenge Post-Quiz, which is the internet safety program developed and administered by the FBI and the Fischler School of Education and Human Services at Nova Southeastern University, Miami, Florida. To date, approximately 100,000 school students have participated in the FBI-SOS Internet Challenge.
