Fiat Chrysler has announced the winner of its Drive for Design contest, which encouraged high school artists to design a Dodge vehicle from 30 years in the future.
The grand prize winner of the contest is Davis Kunselman of Mount de Sales Academy in Macon, Georgia, who designed a sleek, aerodynamic supercar that uses underbody airflow to produce downforce. Kunselman will receive a $50,000 scholarship to Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, Michigan, passes to the EyesOn Design black tie event, a three-day stay in Michigan and an Apple MacBook Pro.
FCA also picked two runner-ups, Richard Chen of Delmar High School in Delmar, Delaware and Paige Webb of Stoney Creek High School in Rochester, Michigan. Similarly, they received a two-week summer automotive design course at Lawrence Tech, passes to the Eyes on Design black tie, a three-day stay in Michigan and an Apple iPad and iPencil.
“The Drive for Design contest helps connect our design team to the extraordinary artistic talent of students across the country and allows us to help guide them for a potential career in automotive design,” Mark Trostle said. “All of the submissions were creative and visionary as they truly thought about what vehicles could look like in the next 30 years.”
