WSCAM Middle School Video Contest
The What’s So Cool About Manufacturing Video Contest began in the Pittsburgh region in 2014 and has been growing immensely since then! The contest supports Catalyst Connection’s effort to build a strong pipeline of talent and give young people a new perspective on the exciting career opportunities that exist in manufacturing.
To participate in the contest, a team of 7 students in grades 7th and 8th create a short 2:30 minute manufacturing video for their peers, parents, and community explaining what they think is so cool and rewarding about manufacturing! The contest culminates each year in the spring with voting and a wonderful celebratory and educational award ceremony!
