SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah Technical College is accepting entries for the 18th annual Manufacturing Appreciation Week student design competition. The competition is open to all elementary (grades K-5), middle (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12) students in Georgia.

The contest, held annually in conjunction with Manufacturers' Appreciation Week, is designed to promote awareness of the role manufacturing plays in the state's economy of the State of Georgia for elementary to high school students statewide. 

Manufacturing is the process of creating physical objects that will be used by someone or used to build something else. Manufacturing provides jobs for approximately 349,138 Georgians. The nearly 9,500 manufacturing facilities in Georgia are devoted to making products as diverse as textiles to automotive parts. Students should consider products made in their hometowns, counties or statewide in their designs to illustrate the role that manufacturing plays in our community.

Submitted artwork will be entered in the statewide competition where three winners will be chosen in each of the groups. The first, second and third place in each age category will be honored at the Governor's Awards Luncheon. The first-place winners receive monetary scholarships for $500, each second place winners receive $300 scholarships and the third place winners receive $100 scholarships. The top entries will be displayed at the luncheon.

Entries must comply with the guidelines established by the Technical College System of Georgia. Art may be computer-generated or created with paint, watercolors, pencils, markers, crayons, charcoal, etc., but should be completely dry before shipping/delivery. Size for artwork is 11-by-17 inches. All work must be flat; 3-D objects cannot be glued or pasted to submissions. Designs will not be returned to contestants.

Entries must be labeled on the back, upper-right corner of each submission with the student's name, school, school phone number and the words "Savannah Technical College."

Artwork must be received by the STC Marketing and Communications Office at the Savannah Campus by Wednesday, Feb. 5, for consideration. Mail or deliver entries to: Savannah Technical College, 5717 White Bluff Road, Savannah, GA 31405, Attention Office of Marketing and Communications. Entries also may be delivered to the Effingham Campus, 2890 Highway 21 S., Rincon, GA 31326; or the Liberty Campus, 100 Technology Drive, Hinesville, GA 31313. 

For more information, call 912-443-5512 or email ashaffer@savannahtech.edu. For additional information on Georgia Manufacturing Week or the MAW student design competition, click here.
