Submissions are now being taken for the state of Oregon’s annual, “Speak up, Work Safe,” video contest.
The top three entries will take home cash prizes ranging from $300 to $500 and students will earn a matching amount for their school.
The contest is designed to increase awareness about safety on the job for young people.
Students must create a 90-second or less video with the overall theme of “Speak up. Work Safe.”
Specific video guidelines are outlined in the contest rules. Participants are encouraged to use humor, creativity, and share the message, “Speak up. Work shouldn’t cost you your future,” while emphasizing ways to protect themselves at work.
