TORONTO — The final challenge of Skills Ontario’s #SkillsAtHome series has been launched.
The #SkillsCakeDecoratingChallenge asks participants to decorate a cake with any materials they would like. The cake may be store-bought or homemade, and submissions must be posted to Twitter or TikTok by Jan. 4.
Skills Ontario’s virtual learning activities will continue this winter with many initiatives including the #SkillsWinterfest2020 program, which includes social media challenges that ask participants to design festive sweaters, build gingerbread bridges and decorate ornaments.
Winners will be awarded Amazon gift cards, and the winner of the People’s Choice award, which is given to the participant with the most social media interactions, can receive a gift card of up to $100, a release indicates. Skills Ontario will be matching the People’s Choice award prize amount and making a donation to the food bank of the winner’s hometown.
“We launched the #SkillsAtHome series back in March as part of our pivot to virtual learning, and we’ve seen great support ever since,” said Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario, in a statement. “We’re honoured to provide Ontarians with activities that build skills and open doors to career exploration, and we thank our many participants. The series may be wrapping up, but Skills Ontario is continuing to deliver remote learning opportunities for youth.”
