Digital Media Technology students at Indiana County Technology Center took second place in a nationwide video contest for their submission, “What’s Your Super Power?”

The Association for Career and Technical Education will issue a $250 check to the ICTC Media and Technology department for their efforts. Students will receive a pizza party from their advisers for a job well done. Melaney Brubaker, instructor of DMT, and Ashley Patrick, instructional aide of DMT, would like to thank everyone in the community for all the support!

“The support and school spirit demonstrated by our community and students is overwhelming,” Brubaker said. ICTC and the community drew more than 2,000 votes. The voting process was used via Facebook. The ACTE video contest is annual, and next year the DMT students are aiming to get first place.

For the past month, six morning and afternoon students from the masonry program at ICTC collaborated on a sturdy project.

The students produced a 60-square-foot wall made out of bricks. On the front of the wall the abbreviation for Indiana County Technology Center is bricked across it. The decked-out wall, with a dash of Christmas lights, took approximately four weeks to build.

Students finished the product just in time for the ninth-grade tours.

The wall was built as a showcase for the ninth-grade tours in order to welcome the ninth-grade students into our school.

Every year during the holidays, the Indiana County Technology Center holds special activities for freshmen from ICTC’s sending schools: Marion Center, Penns Manor, Homer-Center, United, Purchase Line, Indiana, Blairsville and Saltsburg.

Each program area is responsible for planning different fun activities related to their program for the students to be a part of during their time at ICTC.

The ninth-grade showcase is an annual event to show students their different opportunities for career choices.
