It’s Your Job Territorial Youth Video Contest Winners Advance to National Stage

A video by Yellowknife high school students that encourages youth to be aware of workplace hazards has won first prize in the Workers’ Safety and Compensation Commission’s It’s Your Job territorial high school video contest.

The winning team includes students Madison James, Savannah Lane, Tim Herrera, and Briant Kotchea of École St. Patrick High School, in Yellowknife. Their video, “All Thanks to the WSCC”, won $1,000 with a matching prize of $1,000 for their school.

The contest ran from January 15 to March 15, and invited students to create a two-minute video that addresses ways that workers and employers can help create safer workplaces.

The video is now up for consideration at the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety’s (CCOHS) It’s Your Job National Contest, with the winners being announced during North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (NAOSH Week) May 3-9, 2015.

The video is also eligible for voting in the Fan Favourite component of the National contest, where Canadians can view the top videos from across Canada and vote for their favourite. Voting runs from Saturday, May 2 to Sunday, May 10, 2015. The video that receives the most votes receives an additional $1,000 prize from CCOHS. The WSCC encourages Northerners to visit CCOHS’s Facebook page during NAOSH Week to cast their votes, or check out CCOHS’s video contest web page
