Channellock Announces 2019 Trace School Trade-Up Competition
Channellock, Inc. will sponsor its second annual Trade School Trade-Up competition offering cash prizes, new tools and a CHANNELLOCK® classroom makeover for the winners. Students in plumbing, HVAC, welding, automotive and electrical are eligible to participate by creating a short video about how their team uses its technical skills to improve their school or community.
“We believe in the importance of skilled labor in America,” said Jon DeArment, president and chief operations officer of Channellock, Inc. “We hope this competition provides students an opportunity to showcase the value of an education in skilled trades. The skills gap is real, and we need passionate, hardworking people of our younger generations to fill that gap.”
