Car Show


Meryem Yaglidere, World News and Features

The car show/career fair started in 2008. It was initially only a career fair and it was done with businesses and schools from our Advisory Board. We held it in the Media center during lunch periods. The advisory Board then suggested bringing equipment and displays from their shops to show the kids and we moved to the fishbowl and parking lot outside the fishbowl and did it during the school day. We then turned it into a night time event and added a BBQ, DJ and scholarship awards. The night event allowed us to greatly expand the participants as well as invite parents and more members of the community. The show is almost entirely run by students, they arrange the cars and presenters. They set up parking and crowd control as well as monitor the event to ensure everyone has a fun, but safe time. Kids get sponsors including dealerships, Tri County Car Club, Castrol of NA, the WEA and parents who donate to buy the students food, tee shirts and goodie bags. The Tri county Cruisers award auto students scholarships each year.
