In the United States there is a shortage of people entering aviation and other STEM related fields.  According to the National Association of Manufacturing, there will be 3.5 million STEM jobs by 2025 and more than 2 million of them will go unfilled because of the lack of highly skilled candidates.

We want you to create a commercial promoting one of these STEM career fields to people your age!
