Channellock Continues Trade School Trade-Up Competition
Now in its third year, Channellock, Inc.’s Trade School Trade-Up Competition continues to help close the national skills gap by funding initiatives and tools that will support America’s future tradesmen and women. This year will be the biggest year ever for the event, as CHANNELLOCK® will now sponsor two competitions – one in the spring and the other in the fall. In addition, the company is launching its Trade Travelers Tour this spring.
How to enter:
The competition is open to students in plumbing, HVAC, welding, automotive and electrical trades. CHANNELLOCK® wants to know why your program deserves a classroom makeover. To submit an entry, get a group together to create a short video showcasing your team’s skills in action. We want to see what makes your program special. You’ll be graded on passion, content and need.
