SkillsUSA is partnering with CareerSafe for a safety video competition. Teens across the country are challenged to create a video demonstrating safety in the workplace.
CareerSafe, Safety Education for America’s Future, is sponsoring the 2018-19 National Youth Safety Video Contest. The competition kicked off Oct. 16, and all submissions need to be sent into CareerSafe by March 1. The winning students will receive a SkillsUSA prize package as well as a scholarship up to $2,500. The winning school will receive a prize up to $5,000.
Every seven minutes, a teen is hospitalized because of a workplace injury. Every two minutes, a teen is injured in the workplace. Every five days, a teen is killed in the workplace. The competition helps raise awareness about this important issue.
Note: This is not part of the SkillsUSA Championships competitions and has no impact on a student’s eligibility to compete.
