Welcome to Sweety High!
Sweety High is a revolutionary online platform for girls, rewarding user’s
creativity with exclusive real world prizes and one-of-a-kind opportunities.
Having witnessed the lack of quality online destinations for teen/tween girls for
too long, we set out to design a site that would empower girls to support each
other in art, entertainment and design but within a community that promotes
safety, leadership and fair play.
At Sweety High, our focus is on giving girls an opportunity to bridge the gap
between their lives and the cultural products they love; to help them connect
with other like-minded girls by giving them a dynamic creative outlet that also
emphasizes their “off” line lives.
has Privo’s seal of approval as a safe harbor, uses Crisp Thinking – the most
advanced moderation system in the market – and rewards girls for learning
how to protect themselves online. To learn more, please go to Crisp Thinking
