Auto Tech Competition

On Saturday, Nov. 9, the Fort Worth Auto Show will present the first ever Auto Tech Competition. Eight local high schools were selected to participate in the competition based on their scores from preliminary ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) testing. The schools were then paired with dealerships to help them train for the competition. Phase I of the competition will be four workstations designed to test the capabilities of the students, with Phase II being on-vehicle inspection and repair. Prizes include scholarships (provided by The Carroll Shelby Foundation) for each student on the first-place team, as well as Snap-on tool sets for the first-,second- and third-place teams. Each participating student and instructor also will receive swag bags from Audi, Ford, Subaru and Toyota.

“Helping our dealers find quality auto technicians is a very important initiative for the NTXAD (North Texas Automobile Dealers),” said Brent Franks, president of the NTXAD. “This competition is a huge step forward in making this happen.”
