Toronto, Ontario — To anyone who loves passing screwdrivers, we’ve got an event for you.
Throughout the month of May, Skills Ontario is trying its hand at breaking a Guinness World Record for the largest online video chain of people passing and using a screwdriver.
Although this event will have a focus on women in the trades, this world record attempt is open to anyone in the province.
The record attempt was officially launched on May 5, 2021 and Skills Canada will be accepting submissions up until May 26. With a minimum goal of receiving 251 individual video submissions.
All participants will also be added into a draw for a chance to win one of 20 $50 prizes.
Rules for submission:
- Each participant must be equipped with their own commercially available screwdriver, as well as a surface or object where a screw can be inserted
- The videos in the chain must be of a single individual receiving a screwdriver from out of frame (left hand to right hand) and passing the screwdriver out of the other frame
- All of the individuals must receive the screwdriver and use it to screw into the surface/item and pass the screwdriver in the same direction (i.e. all screwdrivers received from the left hand and passed with the right hand).
- When passing the screwdriver in/out of frame, the video must show your forearm/elbow (or your arm being extended)
- The screw must be completely screwed in prior to the participant passing the screwdriver to the next participant
- Only one video can be supplied per person
- All participants must sign a photo/video release form when uploading their video. Participants 18 years and younger must have a parent or guardian sign the form.
