The second contest is Global Schoolnet’s Cyber Fair 2009 contest. As stated on their website, “students are encouraged to prepare for the future - by thinking about the possible future, the probable future, the preferable future and the preventable future. Projects that best illustrate “future thinking” are invited to the World Future Society international conference in Chicago, Illinois, July 2009.” Click here for more information.
