Tamaqua Area Middle School students toured Highwood USA for The Manufacturers’ Resource Center’s “What So Cool About Manufacturing” student video contest. The contest generates awareness about manufacturing careers and the technical skills applied.
The team of five 8th grade students was led by 8th grade math teacher, Megan Frantz. The team included Randy Steigerwalt, Natalie Hydro, Riley Zeigenfuss, Molly Murphy, and Nathan Wickersham. The Tamaqua students felt it was a great opportunity to learn more about manufacturing.
An awards ceremony was held at the Santander Performing Arts Center in Reading, PA on March 7th. The team had won the Viewer’s Choice Award. Last year the Tamaqua team had won best Marketing Plan.
