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 www.goodjobsvideocontest.ca. 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.
FOR SUBMISSION FORMS AND MORE INFO:
The Good Jobs Summit, presented by Unifor, the CAW-Sam Gindin Chair at Ryerson and other partner organizations, will be held at the Mattamy Athletic Centre at the Gardens (formerly Maple Leaf Gardens).
