Oregon OSHA announces PSA contest for teens

Salem, OR – Oregon high school students are invited to submit videos for the 2012 “Save a friend. Work safe.” public service announcement contest.

Sponsored by several groups, including Oregon OSHA, the contest is designed to raise awareness among young people about safety on the job. To enter, students must submit a 45-second PSA reflecting the theme “Save a friend. Work safe.”

Submissions will be judged on:

  • A teen worker health and safety message based on the concept of “Speak Up!”
  • Creativity and originality
  • Overall production value
  • Youth appeal

The deadline to submit videos is Feb. 1. Winners will be announced in the spring. The top three PSAs will be posted on YouTube, and the students will receive prizes ranging from $300 to $500 with a matching amount for their schools.
