Please note: This website
is no longer staffed. If will be left on the internet for use by
students and teachers.
Any information that SNN collects from students or teachers
will only be used for the purposes of the project. We may use
your e-mail address or postal address to send you information
about upcoming issues of SNN or new activities. But your name
and personal information will not be sold or distributed to any
other group. To learn more about privacy and safety for young
people on the Web, we recommend that you read some of the excellent
resources offered by the Media Awareness Network on its site.
SNN's policy is to use a student's full name, school
and city or town at the top of their story. That's known as a
"byline" in the journalism world. Many students have
indicated that they would like to have their work credited to
them for use in their portfolios and on their résumés.
However, if the student would prefer not to use any or all of
that information, please let us know and we will change their
byline accordingly. If students, teachers and parents would like
to learn more about privacy and safety for young people on the
Web, we recommend that you read some of the excellent resources
offered by the Media Awareness Network on its site.
Copyright for SNN articles
The copyright for all of the stories that appear on SNN

educational organization or other parties to reprint a
story that was originally published on this site, SNN will attempt to
contact the student writer for permission. However, if SNN cannot
contact the student, then permission may be granted without their consent.

SNN uses a variety of photos, logos, graphics and video
segments on its sites. Most images were created by SNN staff
and reporters or gleaned from a registered photo or graphic package
such as Corel Clip Art or Kodak Photo Collection.
When SNN uses images created by other individuals and groups,
SNN staff will request permission from the appropriate group
and give credit for the work. We encourage student journalists
to do the same if they send in photos or images with a story.
