Anderson County Chamber of Commerce

Janet Hawkins
East Tennessee Dream It Do It introduced 4 teams of 8th graders to manufacturing by producing videos voted on by the community.
Anderson County Chamber's inaugural "Dream It Do It" competition exceeded expectations as four Anderson County middle school teams, working with local industry, created videos receiving more than 12,000 online votes. The goal was for students to become excited about manufacturing and expose them to the idea that there are numerous job opportunities and careers in advanced manufacturing. Equipped with Go Pro cameras, students were challenged to capture the diversity of careers and technical innovations in manufacturing by producing a short video. Students received a unique look at a manufacturing world they might not have considered as a future career. The winning team received over 6,700 votes and each team member was awarded a Go Pro camera. In addition to a partnership with Anderson County Schools and local industry, the Chamber teamed up with Consolidated Nuclear Security, LLC to develop the Dream It Do It East Tennessee website and provide the Go Pro cameras.
