Skills Canada NWT


Contest closes at 3:00pm, February 16th, 2018

Contest Background

Skills Canada NWT is planning to create a line of merchandise that represents our organization and that helps us build our brand. Once launched, we will be selling our merchandise online as well as at our events and competitions. Our merchandise will consist of different types of apparel including t-shirts, hats, hoodies and jackets.

Contest Description

To kick off our line of Skills Canada NWT merchandise, we want to begin with one amazing design that showcases what Skills Canada NWT is all about – and to find that one amazing design, we are running a design competition for secondary and post-secondary students from the NWT. We are also offering a cash prize of $250 for the winning submission.

What we are looking for

We are looking for a design that can be used on different kinds of apparel, from hats, to shirts, and even on pants. Creativity is key, we want a design that represents our organization and shows off our Northern roots. We also want a design that will appeal to our target demographic, youth and young adults.

How the competition works

We encourage you to do a little research about Skills Canada NWT. Check out the rest of the website, and get a feel for what we do. Then, create a design and submit it to us online. Our team will review all submissions after the contest closing date, and pick the design that best represents the Skills Canada NWT brand.

Good Luck!
