New Market Skills Center students win L&I video contest

Staff writerOctober 30, 2013 

New Market Skills Center students Erik Soper and Megan Bowlen won $800 in gift cards for videos they produced as part of a student safety and health video contest.

The event was sponsored by the state Department of Labor and Industries.

Soper won first place for "The Teen Worker's Survival Guide," a 60-second video that used computer-generated graphics to highlight the hazards, responsibilities and rights that teens have in the workplace, according to a news release.

Soper won a $500 gift card.

Bowlen took second place and won a $300 gift card for "Twitter Safety," a video that used social media in funny and serious ways to call attention to workplace safety for young workers.

The video contest is part of L&I's Injured Young Worker Speakers Program, a young worker safety campaign that reached over 3,000 students and young workers across the state this spring with messages about workplace safety, according to a news release.
