2015 Student Safety Video Contest

School is no place for bullies. Neither is work. You have the right to a job that’s free from bullying and harassment. Using the theme, “No bullies at work – my right to a safe and respectful workplace,” create a video (maximum 2 minutes) that explores the topic of bullying and harassment in the workplace.

When making your video, think of a creative way to get your message across. All styles of video are fair game: drama, comedy, documentary, music video, stop-motion, claymation, animation – the choice is yours!
There are categories for students in Grades 8-10 and Grades 11-12
Entries will be judged on their impact/transferable safety message, original creative concept, and technical execution. Winners take home cash prizes and may also advance to the It’s Your Job national young worker video contest.
Post your video on YouTube then send your link to yworker@worksafebc.com. We’ll review your video and if it meets our criteria (no inappropriate language or images and no copyrighted music please!), we’ll post your entry on our website.
Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, April 1, 2015. Please fill out the entry form: http://www2.worksafebc.com/pdfs/YoungWorker/2015Contest/secondary_school_entry_form_2015.pdf
