Solidworks and FMA Scholarship Opportunities

This was sent to us from Solidworks:

DS SolidWorks and FMA are teaming to help combat the growing shortage of skilled fabricators, sheet metal workers, welders, etc., by sponsoring the “GO-Brennan” contest, named after Brennan Palmiter, a 16-year-old professional race car driver and aspiring welder working toward professional certification. Contestants who submit a short video on YouTube will vie for one of 25 $500 scholarships to a two-year trade or technical school of their choice for classes in welding or other metal fabricating processes. These winners will also receive a free license of SolidWorks Student Edition software, including SolidWorks 3D CAD and SolidWorks Simulation design validation software.

To qualify for the competition, students must plan to attend a two-year trade or technical school next spring for classes in welding or other metal fabricating processes. To enter, students should log onto the “GO-Brennan” video on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-lQPm7gf6I. During the video, you will be instructed to submit a short video (about a minute) explaining why they want to be in manufacturing, what career they seek, and where they want to attend school. They’ll also be encouraged to include footage of themselves welding or building with metal. The deadline to post videos is Nov. 9 and winners will be announced on Nov. 24.
