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 good work practices and being safe on the job. Contestants and their affiliated organizations, institutions, or schools had a chance to win cash prizes, and provincial/territorial, regional, and national recognition.

Eight entries were accepted for national consideration from provincial and territorial contests. The videos were evaluated by a panel of judges consisting of Shirley Hickman, Executive Director, Threads of Life; Ken Welsh, Manager of Operations, APTN; Gareth Jones, President and CEO, National Safety Council; and Chelsea Wong, Volunteer Youth Advisory Group, Youth Mental Health Canada.
