We congratulate students from Portland’s Parkrose High School for claiming both 1st and 2nd prizes for videos entered into the O[yes] video contest!
The goal of this annual video contest, organized by O[yes] – the Oregon Young Employee Safety Coalition – is to inspire teens to stay safe at work with the theme of “Speak up. Work safe.” Videos, produced by Oregon high school students, are judged on creativity, production value, youth appeal, and overall safety and health message. O[yes] and its partners and followers use the videos to promote safety to a vast range of audiences.
