The Chrysler Auto Design Competition: High School Students Design the Future

As part of a design competition for high schools students, Chrysler recently announced the winners of the Meguiar’s 63rd Detroit Autorama. With students from around the country, four talented young artists were lucky enough to be named the winners.

According to Chrysler, the competition was formed in cooperation with the College for Creative Studies (CCS) and challenged public high school students around the country to design a next-generation Dodge. Students submitted hand-drawn sketches and a 500-word essay for the Chrysler Auto Design Competition.

“It’s been exciting to see this competition grow from a local level to now reaching students from all across the nation,” said Mark Trostle – Head of SRT, Mopar, and Motorsports Design. “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 winners received a free three-week summer course in automotive design at CCS, a MacBook or iPad, and passes to the Detroit Autorama. The first place winner also received a $60,000 scholarship to CCS.
