2015 STEM Fest Art Competition

Students throughout Charleston were asked to submit a public service announcement (PSA) for our STEM Fest “STEAM” contest.  Their task was to create brochures, commercials, or postures displaying a revolutionary product that they believe will change our world in the next five years.  Many contestants participated this year, making it difficult for our judges to decide on the winners.  After careful evaluation, our committee chose Alayah Slaughter and A’mya Williams as the winners of the banner competition with their FPH (Foldable Pocket Headphones) creation,  Bernard Brown and Christopher Brown as the winners of the brochure competition with their Pelican Pollution Program, and Thomas Montgomery as the winner of the video competition with his The Reminder commercial.  The winners will have their work displayed at the festival, and will be used to promote the STEM Festival throughout the Lowcountry.  We would like to thank all those who submitted work to this year’s competition and congratulate the 2015 winners!
