MADE Competition

MADE is one of the most successful collaborations between education and industry partners and it gives Burke County students a chance to experience STEAM-based activities that build skills relevant to many of the area industries. MADE encourages students to think outside of the box and engages participants in critical thinking, design, engineering and innovation.

MADE is an event produced by the Historic Morganton Festival, Inc. and takes place annually in October. The 2023 Challenge will be announced in the Spring. If you are interested in learning more about the MADE Competition or would like to be placed on the contact list, please contact Abby Nelson at anelson@morgantonnc.gov or 828-438-5280. Spaces are limited and are first come, first serve.
