Youth game show travels to Labrador West for Game two
Friday, October 17, 2008


St. John’s, NL Game two of SAFE Work NL’s Who Wants to Save a Life?, the new trivia game for youth, was played today at the Labrador City Arts and Culture Centre. The game was officially launched at the Grand Falls-Windsor Arts and Culture Centre on October 3. 

SAFE Work NL’s Who Wants to Save a Life? will also travel to Corner Brook and St. John’s.  The game was developed by the Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission (the Commission), in partnership with the Department of Education and Futures in Newfoundland and Labrador’s Youth (FINALY!).  

“The Commission’s goal is to empower workers, especially youth, to take action to help foster a culture of safety where workplace accidents are unacceptable,” said Leslie Galway, CEO of the Commission.   “One of our strategies for spreading occupational health and safety messages is through this fast-paced game.” 

Participating teams for Game two included Menihek High School of Labrador City and Mealy Mountain Collegiate of Happy Valley-Goose Bay. The winner of the match was Menihek High School.  They will now compete in a semi-final against Lewisporte Collegiate, to be held at the Grand Falls-Windsor Arts and Culture Centre on February 26, 2009.  

During the 2008/2009 academic year, eight schools will compete for over $20,000 in scholarships and prizes. 

Mount Pearl Senior High and Carbonear Collegiate will square off in Game three on October 21 in St. John’s.  Elwood High of Deer Lake and Corner Brook Regional High will play the final round robin game on November 7 in Corner Brook.  The winners of these two games will play in a semi-final on February 5 in Corner Brook. 

The game show finale will be played in St. John’s in May 2009.
