West Michigan students are all set to compete in a video challenge that highlights the potential of manufacturing industry. These are the high school students from Forest Hills, Rockford, Careerline Tech and Kenowa Hills that are receiving their first-hand look inside the happenings of manufacturing industry. This is apparently taking place through the lens of a video camera where many others are competing in the Discover Manufacturing Today video challenge. 

Earlier, this month, all the area students had participated with the local manufacturers to gain a better insight of the various opportunities available in the manufacturing industry. The video challenge is a broad collaboration between the economic development agencies, manufacturers, and workforce and other area schools in order to cater and address the right need for the individuals with enhanced manufacturing expertise. 

According to the Forest Hills Eastern High School students Josie Martin and Michael Mahacek it was a surprise to see most of the many aspects in manufacturing. There is a lot of work that goes into making small things that come to our use in everyday life, and witnessing that was truly amazing, said Martin. 

The Video Challenge is one of the most dynamic ways to expose the students to advanced, high-tech manufacturing streams in West Michigan. It is a better platform to share their enthusiasm and learning experiences with parents, teachers, and friends, and also the community, added Jay Dunwell from the Wolverine Coil Spring. He also added that the student’s creativity for the current year was admirably outstanding. 

Furthermore, the public is free to vote for their favorite video through on the Discover Manufacturing Today Facebook page through Friday, March 28. Nonetheless, the winning videos will be made accessible at Celebration Cinema North on April 30.
