North American International Auto Show announces 2011 High School Poster Competition
Cash prizes will be awarded to 16 Michigan area student winners
TROY, Mich. -- The 2011 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), sponsored by NAIAS LLC, an association of Detroit area auto dealers, announced today the launch of its annual poster contest in connection with the NAIAS next January.
The 23rd Annual High School Poster Contest is open to all Michigan residents enrolled in grades 10 through 12. An independent panel of recognized representatives from the local art community will judge the contest. This year, the NAIAS will choose winners in 16 categories.
"It's amazing to see the unique and innovative automotive designs Michigan's young talent provides to the poster contest," said Barron Meade, Chairman of the 2011 NAIAS. "This opportunity encourages students to pursue interests in not only the art community, but the automotive industry as well."
Winning posters will be displayed at the 2011 NAIAS and reproduced in the official NAIAS program, which is available to the public, corporate executives and automotive suppliers. Winning posters may also be displayed on the official NAIAS website, www.naias.com.
State Farm Insurance, presenting sponsor of Automotive Education Day at NAIAS 2011, also will select a poster and the art from that poster will be reproduced on t-shirts that will be given away to all students attending Automotive Education Day.
In 2010 NAIAS had a record breaking 830 entries from 80 different high schools, exceeding the 2009 entries by nearly 200. The contest was established to engage the creative minds of Michigan's students and encourage careers in automotive design while recognizing local art communities for their talents.
