#explorethetrades Photo Contest

Show Us Your Pride!

Having a job in the skilled trades is something to be proud about! This contest is made for you to express yourself and show us your pride and happiness with your work! Think outside the box, be creative and have fun!

Plumbers, HVAC technicians and electricians are needed just as much as doctors, lawyers and engineers! Our homes, businesses and towns would fail to run without these skilled workers – and that’s something to be very proud of! People working in the skilled trades love what they are doing. Ultimately, skilled tradespeople are helping individuals and communities, all the while measuring the tangible results of their work. Why not show off what you love most about your hard day’s work?

We’ll pick out favorite photo once a week based on creativity, image quality and its ability to tell your story and the winner will be awarded a $50 Amazon gift card! It’s easy to enter and have a chance to win some extra cash!
