John Nover, an eighth grader at Standley Middle School, won an iPad2 and $500 for Standley Middle School after winning first place in the second annual "Securing Our E-City" cybersecurity poster contest sponsored by ESET, a local internet security company. His theme of choice was cyberbullying.

John was recognized at an awards ceremony downtown on Oct. 25, where he picked up his iPad2, and his poster was displayed with a first place sticker on it. He was also interviewed and photographed.

During John’s academic prep class on Nov. 3, the school was presented with the $500 check, which will be used to establish programs at Standley to address cyberbullying and bullying issues on school campus.

Congratulations John and thank you!
