Students in plumbing, HVAC, welding, automotive and electrical trades 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 COO of Channellock Inc. “We hope this competition provides students an opportunity to showcase the immense 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.”

To enter the competition, students are asked to create a two-minute video featuring their team using their technical skills to improve their school or community. Videos will be judged on passion, content and ultimately the impact made on the community. Submissions are due May 15.

From May 15-17, the owners of Channellock Inc., the DeArment family, will select the top three submissions. Final voting will take place on social media from May 22-May 24, with the winner announced on May 27.
