Aspiring Automotive Technicians Face Off in Dearborn

WESTLAND, Mich. - With so much currently happening in the auto industry, and jobs up 30 percent since April 2012, it should come as no surprise that high school seniors are expressing a desire in the automotive field.  Ford works hard to fan this flame, allowing high school juniors and seniors to participate in the Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills Competition. This competition let's aspiring automotive technicians face off in Dearborn, MI, with the hopes of winning scholarships and prizes.

Over 100 potential automotive technicians face off in Dearborn during the week of June 10, 2013, all hoping to win one of the scholarships and prizes that are available. Although the prizes and scholarships range depending on which place the team takes, the winning team gets a chance to spend a week with 2011 Daytona 500 winner, Trevor Bayne. During the exciting week, the winning team will get the chance to work with the Woods Brothers Racing Team and become an honorary pit crew member during the race.

This competition isn't just for anyone however, as over 13,000 interested high schoolers contended and only 100 will compete. After having to take a grueling online exam that measured the skill and knowledge of each test taker, the best 100 scores were taken, and were then split up into teams to compete at the Dearborn competition.  At the competition, they will race against each other as they fix previously planted flaws in 2013 Ford Explorer SUVs. Out of 13,000 hopefuls, these 100 potential technicians are the best of the best, which is sure to make for an interesting time!

It's great to see interest in the auto industry being revived, as the automobile community is beginning to thrive once again.
