TORONTO — Skills Ontario has launched the #SkillsAnywhereChallenge series for February, which asks participants to build a snow structure.
If challenge participants do not have access to snow, Skills Ontario has provided sample recipes for indoor snow within the challenge guidelines.
The program is meant to encourage Ontarians of all ages to explore the skilled trades and technologies, states a release. Skills Ontario introduces a new challenge on the first Monday of every month intended to test Ontarians’ skills in creativity, planning and more. The activities can be done at home, in the classroom, alone or with family and friends.
“Skills Ontario is proud to continue to develop and deliver career exploration programs,” said Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario, in a statement. “As we haven’t been able to hold in-person events, Skills Ontario adapted quickly, offering our existing and new initiatives virtually. The #SkillsAnywhereChallenge series is yet another way Ontarians can test their skills through fun and interactive learning, with the ability to participate from anywhere. We’re very excited to see the submissions to come.”
To participate, challengers must post their project to Twitter or TikTok, ensuring they tag @SkillsOntario and use the #SkillsAnywhereChallenge hashtag. First, second, and third place winners are awarded with $25 gift cards.
