High School Vehicle Build
The SEMA High School Vehicle Build Program uniquely connects high school automotive shop classes with specialty-equipment manufacturers’ products to build one-of-a-kind customized vehicles. Funded by SEMA, this program offers students real-world, hands-on auto-tech skills while becoming engaged in the accessorization and customization lifestyle.
This accessorization project focuses on suspension, wheels and tires, and interior and exterior accessories. With the guidance and instruction of their auto-shop instructors, students customize the vehicles using donated aftermarket products from partnering sponsor companies. After the vehicles are transformed by the students’ hands, they will be sold at the end of the school year. Proceeds from the sale will fund the purchase of another vehicle to support a build in the following school year—making this a self-sustaining program. It’s SEMA’s vision that the expansion of this program will reach thousands of high school automotive shop class students nationwide.
Product donations should fit the following categories:
- Interior Accessories
- Exterior Accessories
