SFMA’s 2022 Student Video Contest

The South Florida Manufacturers Association (SFMA) has held the distinction of being the #1 resource for manufacturers in South Florida for over 60 years. A focus of the SFMA is to support the manufacturing industry through networking, advocacy and resources. Technology has advanced manufacturing processes so much over the years that the old-style perception is no longer accurate. However, most people are not aware of this and there are many high paying career opportunities in the manufacturing industry.

What Manufacturing Used To Be

The purpose of this video competition is to engage students at the high school and college levels to rethink the old-style perception of manufacturing and create a video promoting the contemporary manufacturing industry.

What Manufacturing Is Today
