Two Area Teams Advance to State-level Competition in the “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?” Student Video Contest
Following on the heels of this year’s regional awards ceremony, the organizers of the What’s So Cool About Manufacturing? (WSCM) student video contest for the Chester and Delaware Counties had two teams advance to the “Best of PA” competition.
This is the second year that a state-level competition was held. Regional contests began in 2013 with the Manufacturing Alliance of Chester and Delaware Counties (MACC/DC), an initiative of the Chester County Economic Development Council, launching the contest for our region in 2015. In 2019, participation across the Commonwealth increased by 35% with more than 70% of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties participating.
A total of 239 teams comprised of middle schools paired with manufacturers participated in this year’s regional events with 32 teams invited to the Best of PA award ceremony. The teams from our region were Springton Lake Middle School with Braskem USA, which won locally for the Outstanding Overall Video and Downingtown Middle School with Lasko Products, which won locally for Outstanding Creativity.
