GRAFTON, W.Va. – Taylor County Middle School students are looking for votes on their submission in the “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?” contest.  

Eleven students took a trip to the Appalachian Wood Pellets company to learn about how they operate. They then submitted a video about what they learned for the contest. The video explains the entire process from how the company creates the wood pellets, to bagging and shipping them out. The video also goes in-depth about how the wood pellets are sustainable and not gathered by harming the forests.
