After the launch of last month’s #SkillsAtHome social media challenge series, Skills Ontario announced on April 15 their second challenge, the #SkillsCookieChallenge.

According to the company website, applicants are instructed to decorate a cookie with a skilled trade and technology theme, and they must include a safety component in their submissions. According to Skills Ontario, the purpose of this challenge is to build on creativity and safety standards, and relates to culinary arts and the service sector of the skilled trades and tech.

“A vital part of promoting skilled trades and tech is recognizing just how many career paths there are out there; our first challenge related to construction, and the #SkillsCookieChallenge focuses on culinary arts,” said Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario, in a prepared statement. “As we roll out more challenges through the coming weeks, we’re delighted to cover the vast variety of skilled trade and tech opportunities, allowing participants to develop different skills and explore all pathways available to them.”
