Third Annual "What's So Cool About Manufacturing?" Video Contest Approaches
It’s time once again to discover “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?”
That’s the name of a student video contest, now in its third year, presented by Manufacturers Resource Center and Dream It. Do It. Pennsylvania. “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?” pairs 30 student teams from Lehigh, Northampton, Carbon, Schuylkill and Bucks Counties with area companies to document and explore careers in manufacturing.
More than 100,000 votes were cast during the 2015 contest, which featured 26 teams and seven winners, including Northampton Area School District, which won two awards – Outstanding Cool! and Viewers Choice – for its video on Effort Foundry.
Viewers can judge and vote on this year’s videos Feb. 17-19 at dreamitdoitpa.com. Winners will be tallied before an awards ceremony at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks on Tues., Feb. 23.
