The competition is open to high school seniors or transfer students interested in attending Lawrence Tech’s Transportation Design or Industrial Design programs in Fall 2015.
The second one tasks students to identify and create two innovative products (suchs as tools, shoes, furniture, luggage, etc.) that would appeal to Cortina customers – one complementing the mass-produced Cortina, and another targeted to performance / rally customers.
Over $100,000 in scholarships will be awarded to the winners.
Participants should apply to Lawrence Technological University by Sunday, November 23, 2014. The deadline for submitting entries is Sunday November 30, 2014.
Winners will be announced at the MAIN (Motorcity Auto Industry Night) Event in Detroit on Sunday January 11, 2015.

The Ford Cortina, built by Ford of Britain from 1962 to 1982, was the UK’s best-selling car of the 1970s, and still continues to have a large cult following.
The Cortina also raced in rallies, and Lotus developed some sportier editions of the Cortina Mark I and Mark II which were marketed as the Ford Cortina Lotus.
Considering the Cortina’s mass-market AND performace appeal, design a timeless, iconic vehicle or products for the year 2030.
