This course replaces the former CPT; Computer Production Technology course.
A Kindersley Composite School Student recently won second place in the WorkSafe Saskatchewan 2012 Youth Video Contest. The contest is an initiative by WorkSafe Saskatchewan to raise awareness and knowledge among youth about workplace health and safety issues. Students from across Saskatchewan were invited to submit an original 3-minute video on workplace safety.
A WorkSafe Saskatchewan committee adjudicated nominations based on the students’ creativity and originality in story development, production value, video effects and the video’s overall workplace health and safety message.
Grade 12 student, Vanessa Klassen took second place with her video “Life is Not a Video Game”, that was submitted by teacher Lisa Padberg. As the second place winner she receives $700 and KCS will receive $1000.00. The Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board will present the student and school prizes in June.

Saskatchewan statistics indicate that youth (aged 15-24) are 20 per cent to 30 per cent more likely to have an injury than workers of any other age are. WorkSafe Saskatchewan’s youth strategy is to educate and influence the health and safety beliefs and behaviours of youth to achieve a reduction in injuries.
2013 video contest information will be available in August.
