It’s Time to View and Vote! Deadline for “Generation Auto” Video Contest Ends Oct. 17

WARRENDALE, Pa., Oct. 16, 2014 -

The 2014 Student Video Contest “Generation Auto”, a collaboration between OESA and SAE International with the support of Deloitte, is in full swing.  To date 12 videos have been submitted for consideration in the 2014 Student Video Contest “Generation Auto.”  The contest, which is in its second year, encourages college students to pursue careers in the automotive industry.  The contest targets students who are part of the SAE Collegiate Design Series™ (CDS) competitions to create and submit a 1-2 minute video highlighting the diverse aspects of the automotive industry that make it an attractive or “cool” industry to work in. Cash prizes will be awarded to the SAE CDS teams with the top three videos to be designated toward the upcoming SAE CDS competition: Grand Prize: $4000.00, second prize $3,000.00 third prize $1000.00.

The deadline for the CDS team video submissions was Oct. 11.  Now site visitors can vote for their favorites through Oct. 17.  All submitted videos will move on to additional rounds of judging.  A panel of industry and local leaders will rate the selected videos on a set of criteria including message, accuracy and creativity. For the final round of judging, the three videos with the highest ratings will be viewed and voted on by attendees at the OESA Annual Outlook Conference on Nov. 11. Winners will be announced at the conclusion of the conference.

The partnership between OESA, Deloitte and SAE International is a natural fit--all three organizations see the critical need for the next generation of innovators in the automotive industry.  The need for a highly skilled and technical workforce has never been greater, and the industry offers a myriad of opportunities for ambitious students who desire a challenging career in a fast-paced industry.
