GUNK® products has announced its collaboration with SkillsUSA, a partnership of industry, students, and teachers working to ensure America has a skilled workforce, to launch the 2011 Serious Solutions Challenge. The nationwide challenge asks automotive students to create a video describing their “Auto-Motivation,” or what drives them to pursue a career in the automotive industry.
Five finalists will be chosen based on their video entries with each receiving a $3,500 scholarship toward their automotive technical education. The five finalists and their automotive teachers will also receive all-expense paid trips to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas in November. The students will compete in the Ultimate Challenge, a trivia contest focused on demonstrating their knowledge of the automotive industry. The winner will receive the grand prize of $5,000 to support the automotive department at his or her school.
“We’re committed to helping students further their education and reaching their goals within the automotive industry,” said Marshal Livingstone, GUNK brand category manager at RSC Chemical Solutions. “Through our partnership with SkillsUSA, we are giving students an outlet to express their passion for all things automotive, support their career training, and benefit the schools that helped them become valuable members of the industry.”
