Sixth annual 2010 NAIAS Automotive Education Day

The automotive industry has a future that will demand a trained and prepared workforce. This is the primary focus of the next Automotive Education Day at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), Jan. 20, 2010, at Cobo Center in Detroit.

Students in grades 9-12 and college level are invited to attend Automotive Education Day presented by State Farm Insurance, where those interested in future careers in the automotive industry will once again be offered an opportunity to receive training and valuable knowledge about an ever-changing workplace.

The sixth annual Automotive Education Day allows students to explore the many different career pathways available in all automotive fields through breakout sessions, lesson plans and one-on-one discussions with various participating representatives. This year, a scavenger hunt will be added to encourage students to participate and the first place winner will take home a Sony PlayStation 3.

State Farm Insurance and the Detroit Auto Dealers Association (DADA) Education Foundation will be offering $100 bus grants to the first 100 buses registered. Schools will automatically be signed up for the grants just by registering for Automotive Education Day, and they will be awarded on a first come, first served basis, as the registration forms are received.
