Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 02, 2011
The GUNK Serious Solutions Ultimate Challenge is the pièce de résistance of the collaboration between GUNK and SkillsUSA - a nonprofit partnership of industry, students & teachers, working together to mobilize a skilled American workforce. Selected from thousands of entrants across the nation, the five Challenge finalists will vie for the $5,000 prize in an automotive know-how showdown in GUNK booth 10166 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center at 2 pm PT today.
Says Likis, “The SEMA Show – the automotive industry’s premier event – is the perfect venue to spotlight future automotive service professionals, and it’s my ultimate honor to serve as master of ceremony for this exciting competition.”
GUNK reached out to 200 post-secondary technical schools with automotive education programs to engage their students in the Challenge. Marshal Livingstone, GUNK brand category manager, reflects, “In 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.”
The GUNK Serious Solutions Ultimate Challenge will test the finalists’ automotive knowledge and grace under pressure, as Likis presents questions displayed on a 60” television monitor. Hollywood style, contestants have 20 seconds to answer each question. Each question has different point values, and the student with the most points...wins $5000 for his school's automotive department. Viva Las Vegas!
