Win the Ultimate Starter Tool Kit!

Music festivals wouldn’t happen if tradespeople didn’t have the right tools. Electricians, carpenters and heavy equipment operators rely on their tools and machinery to assemble elaborate lighting and electrical systems, build stages and move land to create a venue fit for a small town.

This incredible feat is highlighted in the Ontario College of Trades’ Tune In, Trade Up campaign video where tradespeople —and their tools— transformed this year’s WayHome and Boots & Hearts Music Festivals into mini cities from the ground up.

Although it only took a couple of weeks to create the venue for these two massive music festivals, it can take years to assemble the perfect tool kit fit for a trades professional.

The Ontario College of Trades has partnered with DEWALT and Stanley Tools and is giving 10 lucky people the chance to win the Ultimate Starter Tool Kit.

These tools are invaluable for anyone interested in becoming an apprentice or even for those who are already on their way to becoming a trades professional.

So if you’re interested in amping up your future with a career in the skilled trades, enter the contest to win one of the starter kits, valued at $1,179.00!

  1. DEWALT five piece Combo Kit containing:
