Video contest asks students to speak up!

“How do you speak up for safety?”

That’s the question we want high school students to answer in the 2017 Student Safety Video Contest. We’re asking students to use a two-minute video to explore the topic of speaking up for their rights at work when something feels unsafe.

The 12th annual student video contest offers four prizes of $2,500 for the top two videos in two categories: one for students in grades 8–10 and one for those in grades 11–12. As in past years, the prizes are shared between the students with the winning entries and their schools. Additional $500 honorable mention prizes may also be awarded. One video will also be forwarded to the “It’s Your Job” national youth safety video contest where it will be eligible for additional prize money.

Entry deadline is March 28, 2017. For more information, and for some inspiration, visit
