"What's So Cool About Manufacturing?" Video Contest

PV Middle School “Video Dream Team” Needs Your Vote!

            Eight Pleasant Valley Middle School students: Lexi Weaver, Mandy Beade,  Jonathan Bogli, Thomas Lovito, Arianna Mulligan, Dana Mead, Tyler Akob, and Aliyah Williams; and their Teacher Coaches, Mrs. Lovito and Mrs. Priebe, have been working hard over the past few months to produce a video about “What’s So Cool about Manufacturing.” The video contest is sponsored by “The Manufacturing Resource Center, Dream It Do It PA Programs,” to introduce middle school students to the great career opportunities available in Pennsylvania’s manufacturing industries. 

            The students interviewed, filmed, and photographed executives and employees at United Envelope in Mount Pocono, PA.  They compiled all their research and information and produced a two minute video explaining the manufacturing process in making envelopes, highlighting “What’s So Cool about Manufacturing”.  Please go to our PVMS Commercial and view our commercial.

            Our students worked hard and learned a lot but now they need your help! Their video is entered into a competition with 30 Lehigh Valley Area Middle Schools.  Videos will be judged in multiple categories such as editing, marketing, creativity, and educational value.
