Designed to introduce high school Juniors and Seniors to the high-tech automotive industry and rewarding career opportunities as automotive technicians, the 2021 OC Driven for Success Competition Finals took place on Saturday, May 1st. For the first time, the event was held virtually, made possible by our supporters!
The culmination of arduous testing and months of training, the competition recognizes the technical expertise of local high school students. It began early this year with an initial field of hundreds of students from 11 Orange County high schools and ended with 28 students competing on an interactive online test designed by college faculty, on the platform Electude.com. The online learning platform mimics gaming technology, allowing students to manipulate tools and parts as they would in real-life.
The top-15 placing Seniors each received a $750 scholarship to an Orange County Community College, plus tool prizes and trophies were awarded to the winners!
The Automotive Technology Scholarship pays for books, tools, college fees, uniforms and for tuition for courses pertaining to automotive technology. The scholarship is valid for Fall 2021 and/or Spring 2022 semesters at one of the participating Orange County Community Colleges.
Your scholarship award of $750 is guaranteed once you have completed your application and are registered at a participating college, by June 1, 2021. Funds will be sent directly to your college.
