In September, we announced the start of our very first Youth Workplace Safety Video Contest, open to youth in Alberta. The response was great, and we were amazed with the quality and originality of the videos.
We would like to say thank you to the students who sacrificed their time and effort to make this contest a success! And a huge shout out to the teachers and parents who supported these teens in their endeavours to make a great films about workplace safety.
We are also very grateful to The Edmonton Millwoods Lion’s Club for their sponsorship of our prize money! We could not have done this contest without your help. The Lions Clubs are leaders in humanitarian service around the world. We are proud t have worked with them on this contest.
The videos were submitted, the results were tallied, and the winners are…
1st Place: Dominic Lindia, Notre Dame High School, Calgary
Dominic’s video showed fantastic film-making ability, and many options for avoiding workplace hazards. Although some of our terminology is different, we fully appreciate the determination Dominic showed in his efforts to portray what a safe working environment should look like.
2nd Place: Beverly Dong, Sir Winston Churchill High School, Calgary
The video Beverly submitted was simple and to the point… And we really appreciated the safety message she delivers with her detailed workplace inspection.
3rd Place: Payden MacDougall, Father Patrick Mercredi Community Highschool, Fort McMurray
Payden created an original take on the contest theme, and we really liked the message he conveys to students: that you will be safer after having taken workplace safety courses. Although the courses in the video aren’t from our JobSafe Program, we really want youth to have access to any education that will keep them safe on the job site.
Congratulations to all of our winners, and to all of the students that submitted videos. We can’t wait to see whats you come up with in 2020!
