We need your help! Please go to Facebook and like and share this post (LINK) in the next two days to help two Mellon Middle School teachers win the People's Choice Award at the 2018 Create! Festival. Amy Barone and Jeff Holliday have been selected as finalists for the June 7 Pittsburgh's 2018 Best of the Creative Industries Awards. Their creation, Mill Makers, will be honored at the 2018 Create! Festival. This award recognizes artists and creatives who are making our region a better place to work, live, and create. Mill Makers is a tabletop game about the early factory system. The first player to build their mill and ship finished textiles to market wins the game. The challenge is to complete all three phases faster than your opponent while avoiding various setbacks.
