ONTARIO — The fourth challenge of Skills Ontario’s #SkillsAtHome social media challenge series is the #SkillsBridgeChallenge, which encourages applicants to design, construct and test the strength of a bridge made of mini marshmallows and toothpicks.
Now accepting submissions on the Skills Ontario #SkillsAtHome webpage, the scope for the challenge also offers suggestions for other household items that may be used in case participants do not have access to mini marshmallows and toothpicks. The skill-building activity relates to skilled profession disciplines such as ironworking, elevating device mechanics, architectural design and welding, indicates a Skills Ontario release.
Participants must send in submissions for the #SkillsBridgeChallenge by May 25.
“Our #SkillsAtHome challenge series has inspired a great amount of submissions, and we’re thrilled to see participants across Ontario developing their skills related to skilled trades and technologies,” said Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario, in a statement. “Through this challenge series, we’re proud to provide Ontarians with fun and engaging opportunities to explore skilled trades and technologies while they stay safe at home.”
To participate in challenges in the #SkillsAtHome series, applicants are asked to share their submissions on Twitter. Winners are awarded prizes provided by Skills Ontario and its partners. All challenge details can be found at skillsontario.com/skillsathome.
