About the Contests

The annual What’s So Cool About Manufacturing® video contests excite students to explore cool manufacturing careers and produce profiles of companies. Each contest features an online vote for its Viewers Choice Award.

The Cool Side of Manufacturing

Created by the Manufacturers Resource Center (MRC) in Allentown, PA in 2013, the What’s So Cool About Manufacturing® contests seek to change students’ perceptions about manufacturing careers. Teams of students and teacher coaches receive camera equipment, software, and professional guidance as they learn to script, record, and edit their video stories.
