The Homeland Security Department praised videos of mischievous college kids, troubled teenagers and talking fingers as winners of the department’s Public Service Announcement Campaign for the Stop.Think.Connect. Internet safety campaign, according to a department news release.

Stop Child Predators produced a video that shows how kids can taunt one another with hurtful Facebook messages and text messages.
