WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA, EASTERN OHIO — Teams of high school students are invited to participate in a regional student video contest sponsored by the Oh-Penn Manufacturing Collaborative.  

The purpose of the video is for teams of students to prepare a 3- to 5-minute marketing video on a manufacturing in-demand occupation highlighting the career, including job duties, education, skills and training and industry-recognized credentials needed for the position. Videos will be posted to the Industry Needs You website at www.industryneedsyou.com and YouTube.

Completed videos will be due by April 8 with online voting to take place from April 14 through 28.

Online voting is open to the public and videos receiving the highest percentage of votes will be reviewed by the judging committee for quality, substance, presentation and informative content.  

One team with the highest combined score from each of the five Oh-Penn Interstate Region counties will be chosen as a first-place winner, earning a prize valued at $1,000.

One overall winner with the highest combined score will earn an additional prize valued at $1,000.

Winners will be announced via the Industry Needs You website and social media on May 5. Winning teams will also be notified of an event where they will be recognized and receive their prizes.
