I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that we have officially launched the 2021 WorkSafeBC Student Safety Video Contest. Please feel free to share this information with students and teachers. There is $10,000 in prize money up for grabs, to be shared by students and their schools. Your assistance in helping to spread word of the contest is very much appreciated!
The contest is now open and we invite students to submit their entries any time between now and the deadline.
Here are some important points about this year’s contest:
CUE BC Winter Edition will be less focused on presentations and more focused on drop-in chats and Q&As so that students can get quick answers to their questions. Any high school student from anywhere in BC is invited to join us and connect with nearly 50 Canadian Universities all in one place!
Dates: Wednesday, January 20th & Thursday, January 21st
Time: 4 pm - 7 pm PST
Where: CUE Website (cuebc.org)
Cost: FREE! But registration is required
