Copy of Manufacturing Day Poster Design Project

Page history last edited by Nina Stokes 6 years, 9 months ago


FLATE is excited to announce the first ever Manufacturing Day Poster Design Project for middle school students!


This student design project involves middle school (grades 6-8) students from across Hillsborough County creating and submitting artwork illustrating their understanding of what manufacturing is and its importance to their lives and communities. Project Guidelines and entry forms are available for download below.

Artwork Design Tips


Many still see the manufacturing industry as merely assembly lines of workers manually processing widgets all day. Educating and informing students about the world of modern manufacturing and the opportunities available in the field is essential. Too many young people are disregarding manufacturing as a career, unaware of the career growth and wage potential. This project provides an opportunity for students to think about manufacturing and how it is relevant to their lives as well as opening their eyes to the many rewarding, technology-driven, high-skill, high-wage careers available.


This project was designed to coincide with the annual celebration of "Manufacturing Day”, happening this year on October 4th


By mail - entries must be postmarked by 10/4/13

By hand - entries must be dropped off at the FLATE offices by 3 p.m. on 10/4/13.


This is a “pilot” project and depending on interest and participation, we hope to have it officially accepted by the school district for next year’s Manufacturing Day.


Please contact me at nstokes@hccfl.edu if you have questions. We look forward to seeing your students' artwork!

Sincerely, Nina Stokes, Project Manager
