The videos are in, and it is now time to vote in Anderson County’s “Dream it. Do it.” middle school competition.
The program is in its fourth year, and it includes six schools from Anderson County and Oak Ridge school systems.
“Dream it. Do it.” is sponsored by the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce, Anderson County and Oak Ridge schools, and Consolidated Nuclear Security LLC. The competition is designed to bring student awareness of job opportunities in advanced manufacturing, a press release said.
Using GoPro cameras provided by CNS, six teams of eighth-graders were paired with area industries to create videos about the companies, the press release said. These videos are now posted online for public voting.
To vote, go to the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce’s webpage at www.andersoncountychamber.org.

- Click on the green “VOTE NOW” icon to get to the “CAST YOUR VOTE” section.

This year’s participant teams included: Clinton Middle School and Protomet, Jefferson Middle School and Eagle Bend, Lake City Middle School and Aisin, Norris Middle School and Clayton Homes, Norwood Middle School and SL America, and Robertsville Middle School and Techmer PM.
