ONTARIO TEACHERS ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO ENTER LIVE SAFE! WORK SMART! CONTEST
It’s Your Job….Start the Conversation!
The It’s Your Job student video contest is back for 2016/17! It’s Your Job challenges Ontario’s secondary school students to create an original video no longer than two minutes in length that can be used in social media to show the importance of working safely on the job. This year’s optional theme, Start the Conversation, gives students the opportunity to create a video showcasing:
- How to communicate with peers – at school, at work, or any other setting – about the importance of working safely on the job,
- A message to peers to raise awareness about workplace safety, or
- Any other health and safety messages students wish to convey.
Videos will be judged on creativity, impact and persuasiveness, overall presentation of workplace information and technical quality.
The first, second and third place teams will be awarded with cash prizes (up to $2,000!), which are jointly funded by the Ministry of Labour and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB). Each winning secondary school will receive a matching prize equal to the total prize awarded to the winning student or team of students.
Students can submit videos until the contest closes on March 3, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
