2017 Youth Video Contest Winners
Each year Skills Yukon and the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board challenge Yukon students in grades 10 through 12 to produce videos that address a theme related to workplace safety. We offer cash prizes to the students and their school and the opportunity to compete in a national video competition for even more prizes.
This year we asked students to produce a short video that included a character named Prevention and the phrase, “Prevention – works for me!” We receive 9 excellent entries that had to be whittled down to three winners. It wasn’t an easy process. We enjoyed watching them all.
We are proud to announce that we selected, “Pipe down,” by Jaiden Legg and James Choi from Porter Creek Secondary School as the first place winner. The students and school will each receive $1000. Jaiden Legg and James Choi’s video will go on to represent Team Yukon at the Skills Canada National Competition in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in May 2017. Join us in wishing them luck.
Our second place winner was “Behind the Scenes” by 2nd place winner Elisha Leender and Eli Moorhouse from FH Collins. The students and school will each receive $500. In third place was “Safety Animation,” by Nic Morgan and Mackenzie Cameron from FH Collins. The students and school will each receive $250.
