The video — Focus on Safety – was done by Shannen Garibay and Maria Himbeault with the support of their teacher Faron Hrynewich. Their prize is $1,000 with their school receiving $1,500 of its own.
This is the second year in a row that Clavet Composite School has won the provincial contest to go on to the national contest, which is happening in Hamilton, Ont.
Here is their winning video.
Last year, Clavet was chosen by voters as the Fan Favourite in the national contest and by the judges for third place. Cash prizes are awarded to the recipients of these awards too.
The National Fan Favourite has gone to a Saskatchewan video the last four years.
To keep that winning streak alive, vote for Clavet at http://ccohs.ca/youngworkers/video_contest.html or https://www.facebook.com/CCOHS Voting is open from Saturday, April 29 to Friday, May 5. You can encourage others to vote by sharing those links.
Congratulations also goes out to the other winners of this year’s WorkSafe Saskatchewan Youth Video Contest. Both are from Winston Knoll High Collegiate and were supported by teacher Michael Brouet.
Second place goes to Braydon Wilkes and Jon Raedeke for their video Shortcuts Cut Life Short. Their prize is $750 with the school receiving $1,000.
Third place was awarded to Riley Lyons, Dani Shmatov, Manav Karwal and Carson Zikman for WCB Mission Zero Car Video. These winners receive a prize of $500 with the school getting $750.
All students who participated in the contest are to be commended for their work to spread the message of safety. It is through these types of efforts that Saskatchewan will reach zero injuries, the aim of Mission: Zero.
