Skills Ontario begins Spooktacular promotion
Skills Ontario has begun a Halloween-themed promotion called the “Skills At Home Spooktacular.” The initiative consists of a series of free online activities for youth who will be remaining home on Halloween due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It also includes three contests and a live pastry arts workshop. The contests invite participants to design costumes, carve pumpkins and build rollercoaster candy dispensers. Winners in various categories will receive $25 Amazon electronic gift cards. The promotion will take place at <http://www.skillsontario.com/spooktacular> until Oct. 31. Skills Ontario works to provide young residents of the province with information about careers in the skilled trades.
“Skills Ontario is proud to have made the quick pivot to virtual learning during these extraordinary times,” said Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario. “Through this initiative, we can continue to reach thousands of young people across the province, not only to provide them with fun learning activities, but also to inspire them to explore the skilled trades and technologies, and ultimately build our future skilled workforce.”
