TROY, Sept. 8, 2011 -
The 2012 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 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. In 2011, NAIAS received 740 entries
from 79 high schools.
The 24th annual NAIAS 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. Past judges have included the
NAIAS Chairmen, General Motors Automotive Designers, and College
for Creative Studies instructors. This year, the judges will choose
winners in 16 categories.
"We are extremely excited to launch
this year's creative competition," said Bill Perkins, Chairman of
the 2012 NAIAS. "This unique opportunity encourages students to
pursue interests in not only the art community, but the automotive
industry as well."
