Sycamore wins national safety video competition

November 7, 2017

Indiana State University senior safety management major Miriah Cherry won first place in a national competition for best safety video.

The Board of Certified Safety Professionals invited students from the Graduate Safety Practitioner (GSP) Qualified Academic Programs (QAP) to share why they value safety, aim to achieve the Certified Safety Professional (CSP) certification and wish to inspire others to #ChooseSafety as part of a video competition.

The students drew from their desire to pioneer, some turning adversity to opportunity, all adamant about building safety that ensures others are safe from harm. They have truly amazing stories. After receiving many great videos, the board selected Cherry of Greencastle as the competition's winner.

The top three videos, as well as honorable mentions, are available on Board of Certified Safety Professionals' YouTube channel and will be released on other BCSP social media as part of the #ChooseSafety campaign.
