LAUNCHED: WorkSafeBC 2024 Student Safety Video Contest
WorkSafeBC has officially launched the 2024 Student Safety Video Contest. Please feel free to share this information with youth you may work with (between grades 8-12) and other youth organizations.
There is $10,000 in prize money up for grabs, to be shared by students and their youth organizations (or schools, if the entry comes via their teacher/school). Your assistance in helping to spread word of the contest is very much appreciated!
Here are some important points about this year’s contest:
- The contest website, including full details, rules, and the contest entry form is at www.worksafebc.com/
- A poster that you can print and post in your school or email to students/teachers is attached
- The theme of this year’s contest, Staying focused at work, asks students to create a short video on how distractions on the job can result in accidents. It asks youth to think about what they need to stay focused at work and what their employers can do to help.
- Contest is open to students in grades 8-12
- There are four $2,500 cash prizes to be shared by the students and their teacher/organization sponsors
- Prizes are funded by contest sponsors Actsafe, London Drugs, Seaspan, and by WorkSafeBC

- There are two categories for entries: grade 8-10 and grade 11-12
- Entries can be live action, documentary-style, animation, stop motion…whatever creative style your students can imagine!
- Entries are to be submitted by the teacher or youth organization sponsor
