In partnership with the Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance & Motoring Festival, Michelin hosted its 2nd Annual Junior Challenge Design Contest. Michelin asked students at Beaufort County high schools to produce drawings and an explanation of the idea of what a classic car of the future could look like.Once the entries were received they were judged by a panel at Michelin’s headquarters and a top entry was chosen from each high school.
School winners were each given a $500 college scholarship and overall winner Lily Tothero received an additional $500. Her work is pictured below. A $1,000 scholarship went the school of the grand prize winning entrant, which was Hilton Head High School. Prizes were sponsored by Driving Young America, the Concours d’Elegance charitable foundation.
