WATERLOO, Ont. — After the launch of last month’s #SkillsAtHome social media challenge series, Skills Ontario announced its second challenge, the #SkillsCookieChallenge.

Applicants are instructed to decorate a cookie with a skilled trade and technology theme, and they must include a safety component in their submissions. This challenge aims to build on creativity and safety standards.

“A vital part of promoting skilled trades and tech is recognizing just how many career paths there are out there; our first challenge related to construction, and the #SkillsCookieChallenge focuses on culinary arts,” said Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario. “As we roll out more challenges through the coming weeks, we’re delighted to cover the vast variety of skilled trade and tech opportunities, allowing participants to develop different skills and explore all pathways available to them.”
