Can you believe it’s almost over? It’s a bittersweet moment for us, because it feels like just yesterday teams were at their manufacturing facilities touring and learning new things about the industry. However, it also means that the What’s So Cool About Manufacturing Awards Ceremony is coming up! One of the best nights of the year!

Every year after the votes are submitted and the contest is coming to an end, we throw a celebration for all the students who participated! It’s a great way to conclude the contest and recognize all the hard work students put in to produce their two minute clips. We greatly appreciate all the time and effort students, teachers and manufacturers have put into the contest and want to celebrate everyone’s manufacturing experience!

Come see a collaborative robot make you a cup of hot chocolate, garnish a cookie at our cookie decorating station and wait with anticipation and excitement as we reveal the 2017 video contest winners!

Students will have the chance to win prizes throughout the evening as well. If a student visits every manufacturing booth and writes down one new thing he or she learned, he or she can enter their name into a drawing for awesome prizes. Family, friends, parents, community leaders and administrative staff are all invited to come!

Highlights of the evening include:

  • Collaborative hot chocolate-making robot
  • Cookie decorating station
  • Prize drawings!
  • Win your team a pizza party
  • Video Awards
  • Magic Mirror Photo Booth
  • Learn from 17 different manufacturers across the state

Mark your calendars for Tuesday evening, January 9, 2018! We can’t wait to see you there.
