THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Students looking for a creative way to earn money for college are encouraged to enter the Annual Manufacturing Appreciation Week Design contest.     

The contest includes three categories- kindergarten through 5th grade, 6th through 8th, and 9th through 12th.     

Winners will meet Governor Deal and receive up to five hundred dollars in scholarship money.  

"Not only does it display their artistic talents, but also it's a good way to promote manufacture appreciation week but also manufacture in Georgia because I think many people in Georgia forget that almost ten percent of the jobs are in the manufacturing industry,"  said SWGTC President Dr. Craig Wentworth.       

The deadline to submit entries to southwest Georgia Technical College is February 5th.
