Chamber’s ‘Manufacturing Art Contest’ winners announced

The Anderson County Chamber of Commerce sponsored a “Third Grade Manufacturing Art Contest” across both Anderson County and Clinton City Schools.

The purpose of this project was to expose third graders across our county to introductory concepts regarding industry in our area while integrating art standards. The Education Workforce Committee collaborated with Allison Swanner, Clinton City Schools art teacher and Allison Greenhouse, Anderson County art teacher to implement the inaugural year of this contest. Students were asked to summarize several concepts of manufacturing into a picture using a variety of art mediums. They created some amazing representations. The winner at each school will have their framed piece of art work displayed in a local industry. Congratulations to the following school winners:
