Contests

Every spring, the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board launches three contests aimed at inspiring a culture of safety among Yukon youth. The contests challenge youth to think creatively about how they can integrate safety into their lives — whether that’s at school, at home or at work.

They’re fun, collaborative and encourage youth to think outside of the box about safety culture, giving them a foundation for preventing physical and psychological injuries throughout their lives.

Read the descriptions below to find out more about each contest. 

Youth Video Contest

The Youth Video Contest challenges high school students to create a short video about workplace safety. The contest is open to students in Grades 8 to 12. Winners receive a cash prize of $1000 for their team, plus $1000 for their school or skills club. Each year there is typically a theme that reflects a topic central to workplace safety in the Yukon and across the country.

Check out the full contest details.

Safety Build

The Safety Build contest challenges elementary school students in Grades 1 to 7 to build LEGO models that reflect how they can stay safe during everyday activities. Students use post-it notes to label the build, describing what the danger is and what actions they can take to stay safe. Students then take a picture of their build and send it to YWCHSB for their chance to win a safety-themed LEGO kit.

Explore Safety

Explore Safety is a program that encourages elementary school students to integrate safety into every activity. The program is simple: teachers submit a safety-related project proposal and, in return, we give them $200 for their classroom.
