“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.”
Entry videos, which the students have been submitting throughout the summer, will be judged by representatives of RSC and SkillsUSA. Finalists of the Serious Solutions Challenge video entry portion of the competition will be announced in September and the five students and their teachers will be flown to Las Vegas November 1 for the SEMA Show where they will compete in the Ultimate Challenge.
“Today’s automotive students have been granted a valuable opportunity through their participation in the Challenge,” said Tim Lawrence, executive director of SkillsUSA. “This scholarship initiative has the power to further enhance our members’ education. We can’t wait to showcase what drives them to succeed in today’s automotive industry.”Video entries can be viewed on the Serious Solutions Challenge YouTube Channel.
