Manufacturing Matters Video Challenge — Deadline Extended!

We Want Your “Manufacturing Matters” Videos

Tick tock — the time to act is now! The deadline to submit your video for the Manufacturing Matters video challenge has been extended to Friday, 5/2/14. Capture a short video of what manufacturing means to you and receive a Howard Miller desk clock as our thank you gift.

Tell the world why manufacturing matters to Michigan and how this booming industry is leading the state — and nation — in jobs, technology and philanthropy. Get going — rev up your creativity, pull out your camera or phone, and record a short (60 seconds or less) video message.

As an example, check out the cell-phone videos we shot of MMA staff and the staff mash-up video to see why manufacturing matters to us!
