At Channellock, Inc., we’re working to help close the skills gap through initiatives that get tools and funding to where it can have the biggest impact for future tradesmen and women. Our CHANNELLOCK® Trade School Trade-Up Competition gives trade schools across America the chance to win a free supply of CHANNELLOCK® tools, a $5,000 cash prize and a shop makeover.
To submit an entry, get a crew together to create a short film about your program and how a makeover would help. We want to see what makes your program special. Check out a winning video example. Teams must be comprised of students in the automotive, plumbing, welding, electrical or HVAC trades. Good luck!
