UNICEF, Voices of Youth and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) are proud to announce that winner of the 2013 BYND2015 Global Youth Summit 'Be Smart Be Safe' video contest is Rebeca Mariño Oviedo from Costa Rica.

Rebeca's video concept shows how young people can make the right choices when the use the internet and social media, by thinking through the possible outcomes that an action could lead too. It captures the important message that empowering children and young people is essential to creating a safer and happier internet for all.

"I thank UNICEF for giving me the opportunity to convey my idea on how to fight grooming which affects many young people today. I am also pleased with the development I gave to this idea as it is necessary to fight for the protection of children," said Rebeca.

Over the next few months we'll be working with Rebeca to turn the concept into a video.

Stay tuned because you'll be the first to hear about it.

Congratulations Rebeca.
