Skills Ontario has launched a social media video challenge on March 28, using hashtag #SkillsAtHome, to encourage what it calls the fun and continuous exploration of the skilled trades and technologies career paths to youths.

The #SkillsAtHome series will consist of several challenges through the coming weeks relating to the skilled trades and technologies.

“It was a disappointing decision to cancel our 2020 Skills Ontario Competition, originally scheduled for May 4-6, but the right one, as we prioritize the health and safety of the many Ontarians we reach,” said Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario, in a prepared statement. “Through this social media initiative, our goal is to ensure that our many audiences can continue to learn about skilled trades and technologies through fun, experiential learning, all while staying safe at home.”

According to the company website, Skills Ontario staff will judge video entries based on the length of the track and the amount of social media interactions on the Tweet submissions, as well as creativity, visual appeal, and construction.

To participate in the challenge, audiences will be asked to share their video submissions on Twitter. Winners are chosen by the Skills Ontario team, and will be awarded prizes provided by Skills Ontario and its partners.

All challenge details can be found at skillsontario.com/skillsathome.

Along with Twitter, Skills Ontario can also be found on Instagram at @skillsontario, on LinkedIn at “Skills Ontario”, and on Facebook at “Skills Canada – Ontario.”
