Thank you for your interest in becoming a sponsor of the SEMA High School Vehicle Builds. This unique program brings high school auto shop programs and manufacturers of automotive aftermarket products together to ignite a passion for customization in students across the nation.
This program provides students a hands-on learning experience that compliments and enhances their standard curriculum by learning new skills through working with aftermarket products. Students will take a real-world approach to their builds by developing a cohesive plan for the vehicle, creating and following a build schedule and working as a team to take a vehicle from stock to a fully customized vehicle.
Generally, auto shop students have a desire to pursue a career in the automotive industry and through the SEMA High School Vehicle Build Program, students will be introduced to a new career path option in the aftermarket industry. Aftermarket professionals will connect with the students through scheduled visits to talk about the different opportunities within the industry.
As a SEMA high school build sponsor, your company will be supporting the investment in the future of the automotive aftermarket industry. Sponsors will receive recognition on SEMA's build website and in SEMA promotions of the program. Sponsors also have the opportunity to visit the participating schools through scheduled visits to perform product demos, talk about opportunities within their companies and be an industry ambassador.
