On March 6th, FCA US LLC announced the winners of this year’s Nationwide High School Automotive Design Competition. The four young winners were recognized at the “Meguiar’s 63rd Detroit Autorama” event for the vehicle sketches submitted as a part of the competition. According to Mark Trostle – Head of SRT, Mopar and Motorsports Design, FCA US LLC, “It’s been exciting to see this competition grow from a local level to now reaching students from all across the nation. Partnering with CCS and Detroit Autorama gave us the exposure needed to attract young, creative minds and hopefully inspire them to explore automotive design as a potential career.”
The Nationwide High School Automotive Design Competition is a collaborative effort between the FCA US Design team and the College for Creative Studies or CCS. To participate in the competition, US public high school students were asked to submit hand-drawn renderings of a next generation Dodge vehicle for the year 2025. In addition to the drawing, students had to write a 500 word essay describing what the Dodge brand means to them. This year’s winners are as follows:
- In First place, Joshua Blundo of Moultonborough Academy located in Moultonborough, New Hampshire.
- In Second place, Conner Stormer of Stoney Creek High School located in Rochester Hills, Michigan.
- In Third place, Hwanseong Jang of Bloomfield Hills High School located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
- In Fourth place, Dongwon Kim of Homestead High School located in Sunnydale, California.
Each winner was given a prize package that included a three-week summer automotive design course at CCS , a MacBook or iPad, and passes to Detroit Autorama. The first plance winner was also awarded a $60,000 scholarship to CCS. All of the winning sketches were on display at the Detroit Autorama from March 6-8 as a part of the Mopar booth.
