Waianae High School won four of five categories at the FBI’s annual Internet Safety Awards on Friday at Farrington High School.

Waianae took the top prizes for videos warning about cyberbullying, piracy/plagiarism, and social networking/online predators for “Shut Cyberbullying Down,” “The Computer Wizard,” and “Gotcha.” It also won Best of Show for “The Computer Wizard.”

Aina Haina School took the People’s Choice Award for its video “Do You Know Who You’re Chatting With?”

The Internet Safety Awards was created two years ago by Infraguard, a partnership between private organizations and the FBI, to protect youths from dangers on the web. 

From 22 schools statewide, 272 students — from fourth graders to high school seniors — participated in the event and submitted 72 short public service videos to raise awareness of Internet risks. The winning videos will be telecast statewide as public service spots.
