Chrysler launches design competition for Michigan High School students

Chrysler has launched the “Autorama High School Design Competition 2014”, a contest open to high school students attending a Michigan public school. The deadline for submission is January 10th, 2014.


The 2nd edition of the competition invites participants to design a vehicle that satisfies the needs of young consumers while remaining eco-friendly.

All entries must be received at Chrysler Group’s Product Design Office no later than Friday, Jan. 10, via U.S. mail or email.

The judging panel will include designers from the Chrysler Group Product Design, along with faculty from CCS.

The contest is divided into four categories – Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior. Prizes include iPads, iPads mini, three-week summer automotive design courses at CCS and passes to Detroit Autorama.

Finalists in each grade will be announced on Jan. 31. Winners will receive awards at a special presentation on March 7 at Cobo Hall in Detroit to help kick off the 62nd annual Meguiar’s Detroit Autorama.

“We created this design competition a year ago as a way to creatively connect with the youth of the Motor City,” said Mark Trostle, Head of SRT, Mopar and Motorsports Design, Chrysler Group LLC.

“Now, with help once again from the College for Creative Studies and Detroit Autorama, we’re opening the competition up to all Michigan public high schools to showcase talent throughout the entire state and hopefully inspire new and aspiring automotive designers.”
