Oklahoma Teens Invited to Enter Safety Video Contest

The Oklahoma Department of Labor and the Oklahoma Safety Council co-sponsor the "Speak Out for Workplace Safety!" contest.

Trying to "bring education, business & industry, and government together to promote teen worker safety," the Oklahoma Department of Labor and the Oklahoma Safety Council created a statewide student video contest called "Speak Out for Workplace Safety!" They're inviting high school students (grades 9-12), supported by their teachers, statewide to enter it by March 6, 2015.

The point of the contest is to teach students about employment laws that apply to young workers. The top three videos will earn their makers cash prizes, while the honorable mention video earns a gift card. Contest rules are posted at www.labor.ok.gov, while the teachers' guide is posted here.

Entries must be original work and must incorporate the "Speak Out" theme, address a workplace health and safety topic (in any industry), be no longer than 90 seconds, and be submitted on a CD or DVD. Teachers are asked to spend at least two classroom sessions on the subject matter, allowing students "to gain a foundation of knowledge and skills to stay safe and healthy on the job," according to the entry materials.

Educational tools are available here, and federal OSHA's young worker safety page is here.
