All Canadian students/youth eligible to participate in the Good Jobs Video Contest

Not from the Toronto area? Not a problem! We've extended the region for the community portion of this contest to all of Canada - and the deadline has been extended as well!

Is a good job important to you? If you are a student (high school/college/University/apprenticeship) or  youth (under the age of 25) living in Canada, put together a short video and you could win $500!

Unifor and the CAW-Sam Gindin Chair at Ryerson University are asking you to create short videos around the theme of "Good Jobs."  These can be short videos, documentaries, vines, text-based, or any other form.

We are looking for short video entries that answer any of the following questions: What are your ideas for good jobs?  A good jobs revolution - What does that look like?  How can we get there?  What makes a job “good”/”lousy”?  As a young person, why are good jobs important to you?

There is a separate contest for Ryerson students and one for other Canadian students/youth.  Full details are at  Deadline for submissions is September 26, 2014 at 9 a.m.

The winning videos will be announced and screened at the Good Jobs Summit, happening in Toronto from October 3 to 5, 2014.
