Youth Video Contest

We’re sponsoring a video contest with Skills Canada Yukon, and there are some great prizes:

  • 1st Prize: $1000 for your team, plus $1000 for your school or skills club
  • 2nd Prize: $500 for your team, plus $500 for your school or skills club
  • 3rd Prize: $250 for your team, plus $250 for your school or skills club

In addition to the cash prize, the first place team will have the opportunity to compete as part of Team Yukon at the 2018 Skills Canada National Competition in Edmonton, Alberta.

For inspiration, check out last year’s winners.

What’s the catch?

There’s no catch. But there is a theme.

Your video must explore the theme “Weed at Work.” Safety and being stoned don’t mix. Think about how you can make sure work stays safe when marijuana is legal.

Who can enter?

Yukon high school students in grades 9 to 12 are eligible to enter this competition. Cast members don't have to be students.

How long can the video be?

Videos may be up to two minutes long, including titles and credits.

How do we enter?

  1. Download and fill out an entry form.
  2. Submit the completed entry form. Contact information is on the form.
  3. Upload your video to YouTube. Include the hashtags #focusonsafety and #safetyandbeingstoneddontmix.
  4. Email a link to your video to Natalie Thivierge at Natalie.Thivierge@gov.yk.ca.

What’s the deadline?

Submit your completed entry form and video link by 5:00 p.m. PST on Friday, April 13, 2018. Late entries will not be accepted.
