Each year youth across Canada are invited to enter the national Focus on Safety Youth Video Contest sponsored by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS). Contestants are tasked with producing an original video that illustrates the importance of working safely.

The 2022 Focus on Safety Youth Video Contest offers three ways to win to allow full participation across Canada:

Provincial/Territorial Contest 
Each participating province and territory hosts its own contest, co-sponsored by CCOHS, with specific eligibility criteria, deadlines, and requirements. The first place winners of these contests are entered into the national contest.

Regional Qualifier Contest 
This contest is open to youth who reside in provinces that are not running youth video contests. The winning individual or team will receive $1,000 and the winning video will be entered into the national contest. Video submissions for this category must be received by Tuesday, April 5, 2022. 

National Contest 
The winners of the regional, provincial, and territorial contests are entered into the national contest. The first place video at the Canadian finals will win $2,000, second place will receive $1,500, and third place will receive $1,000. Additionally, CCOHS will award a matching prize to each winning school or institution. Winners of the national contest will be announced during Safety and Health Week in May 2022. 

More information about the Focus on Safety Youth Video Contest including links to each provincial/territorial contest, deadlines, and criteria for the regional contest can be found on CCOHS’ Young Workers Zone website.
