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.
