The winners of the 2023 National Focus on Safety Youth Video Contest have been announced by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS).

The video contest challenged youth across the country to use their creativity to produce an original video that could be used in social media to illustrate to younger workers the importance of working safely on the job, it said in a press release.

Contestants and their affiliated organizations, institutions, or schools had a chance to win cash prizes, and provincial/territorial, regional, and national recognition.

Nine entries were accepted for national consideration from provincial, territorial, and regional contests. The videos entered in the national contest were evaluated by a panel of judges consisting of Shirley Hickman, executive director, Threads of Life; Kerry Moraes-Sugiyama, national executive, APTN; Andrew Shaver, past national executive vice-president, Union of National Employees Public Service Alliance of Canada and Chelsea Wong, volunteer youth advisory group, Youth Mental Health Canada.
