A team of three students from Sir John Franklin High School won first place for their entry in the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety’s (CCOHS) #FocusOnSafety National Youth Video Contest.
Video creators Braeden Cordero and Markus Cluff and actor Tamara Jovic won $2,000 for their video entry “Workplace Spook” with a matching prize of $2,000 for their school.
Their video also previously won $1,000 with a matching school prize in the territorial contest.
“The contest is a fantastic way to engage young people in workplace safety, and we are impressed with how this team created such a memorable video,” said Barb Heming, WSCC Senior Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) inspector and one of the territorial competition judges, in a news release. “Their message about workers’ rights will appeal to employers, and workers of all ages.”
