Freeport Area students compete in What’s So Cool About Manufacturing? student video contest
Dream It. Do It. PA created its Student Video Contest titled What’s So Cool About Manufacturing? to generate excitement about manufacturing careers by giving students direct access to local manufacturers to find out why they love their jobs.
Teams of middle school students are provided video equipment and training and are matched with manufacturing companies and teacher coaches. The teams created short video profiles of their companies and the career opportunities they offer. By improving the image of these careers and creating awareness for them, the contest not only aims to sustain manufacturing careers, but aims to help them thrive.
