Second Place: Anti-bullying (outdoor ad campaign)
Our second place winner is Graham Steffan for his outdoor ad campaign "Bullying and Harassment Can Affect Anyone in the Workplace", which shows there is no personal protective equipment (PPE) that can prevent workplace bullying and harassment. The bus shelter ads creatively shows common PPE with contrasting, but clever taglines, driving the audience to safemanitoba.com find out more about preventing bullying and harassment in the workplace. Graham wins $1,500 and an additional $1,500 for his school, Collège Sturgeon Heights Collegiate.
Third Place: Set Apart (orginial song)
Our third place winner is Joshua Wiebe for his original song, Set Apart. His song is about a kid who has just entered the workforce and is navigating a new job and dealing with the pressures of family obligations, while experiencing bullying and harassment from his co-workers. He hopes the listener will come to their own conclusions on how to treat others in the workplace instead of just being told how to, which he says can be quickly forgotten. Joshua will receive $1,000 and has won an additional $1,000 for his school, West Kildonan Collegiate.
