The seventh challenge of Skills Ontario’s #SkillsAtHome social media challenge series is officially here. The #SkillsLogoChallenge asks participants to use their creativity to make the Skills Ontario logo using any artistic style they’d prefer. With options to paint, draw, sew, stitch, weld, bake, sculpt, and more, challengers will be marked on their ability to accurately represent Skills Ontario’s logo.
This challenge develops abilities in planning and design, creativity, and fine-motor skills. As Skills Ontario’s mission is to encourage youth to explore skilled trades and technologies, this challenge relates to the skilled professions of painter, decorator, ironworker, and carpenter/woodworker. While Skills Ontario primarily reaches youth, Ontarians of all ages are encouraged to give the #SkillsAtHome challenges a try.
“We’ve been releasing challenges every two weeks and the response has been incredible,” says Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario. “We’re thrilled to bring opportunities to Ontarians learn about skilled trades and technologies, both in-person and virtually, and we’re proud to continue the learning. We can’t wait to see the design skills to come!”
As this challenge launches, the previous challenge, the #SkillsTowerChallenge, reaches its deadline. Participants must send in submissions for the #SkillsLogoChallenge by July 6th.
To participate in challenges in the #SkillsAtHome series, audiences are asked to share their submissions on Twitter. Winners are awarded prizes provided by Skills Ontario and its partners. Skills Ontario thanks its #SkillsAtHome program sponsors: the Government of Ontario, 3M Canada, Centennial College, Haas, Humber College, IHSA, Linamar, Magna, OPG, RBC, and WSIB, as well as its #SkillsLogoChallenge sponsors: Georgian College, Loyalist College, OCAS, Seneca College, Sheridan College, and Vale. All challenge details can be found in both official languages 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.” Skills Ontario looks forward to continuing to provide fun and interactive learning opportunities to build a strong and robust workforce.
