‘Tis time for Oregon high school student producers to think about what creative piece they will submit for this year’s O[yes] Speak up. Work safe. video contest! Thanks to continuing support from sponsors, creators of the top three winning videos earn cash prizes for themselves with matching prizes for their schools.
Although the contest deadline isn’t until February 1, 2013, you might encourage any students you know to begin thinking about their angle and message. And share the contest webpage with students, teachers and anyone else who might be interested in the contest. O[yes] welcomes entries from all reaches of Oregon.
Submissions will be judged on the following:

Following the contest, videos are used by O[yes] at educational events and exhibits, on YouTube, and in the classroom. The mission of O[yes] is to prevent young worker injuries and fatalities.
