Student Video Contest

Win cash prizes and provincial and national recognition!

Use your creativity to develop an original video that can be used in social media to illustrate the importance of working safely on the job. This year there is an optional theme: Speak Up! Speak Out!

Students can create a video showcasing:

  • Advice on how to ask employers and co-workers questions about workplace safety without fear or embarrassment,
  • A message to employers on how it is okay for youth to ask them questions about workplace safety, or
  • Any other health and safety messages students wish to convey.

The top Ontario video will be entered in the national contest to compete against secondary school winners from across the country. This year the first place national contest winner will get the chance to attend the North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week Launch ceremony on May 2, 2016, in Ottawa, where their video will be announced and shown.
