Cookie Crumbles Contest Entries Due Oct. 21st!

StopBadware and the Berkman Center are hosting an online video contest to help explain web cookies to average internet users.

Help answer these common cookies questions:

* What is a cookie?
* How do cookies work?
* How can cookies be used?
* How is the data from cookies used?
* How can cookies be misused?
* What options does a user have to manage cookies?

The top few submissions, as determined by a combination of YouTube viewers and Berkman staff, will earn their creators a trip to Washington, D.C., where their videos will be aired and discussed at the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s November 1-2 Town Hall workshop entitled “Ehavioral Advertising: Tracking, Targeting, and Technology.” Several prizes will be awarded, including one grand prize of $5,000. The contest entry deadline has been extended to the end of the day on October 21, 2007.

How do you enter? Just create a short video explaining cookies, upload it to YouTube and submit it to our YouTube group, and then officially enter the contest through our submissions form. Of course, be sure to read all the official rules and guidelines first!
