NAIAS announces 2015 Poster Contest winners

The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) announced the winners of its annual high school poster contest held in conjunction with the 2015 edition of the show, which takes place January 17-25, 2015 at Cobo Center in Detroit. This year's contest drew 781 entries
from 58 schools.

The grand prize, the Chairmen's Award of US$ 1,000, will be presented to Daniel Fullan, a student at the Utica Center for Science and Industry. NAIAS 2015 Chairman, Scott LaRiche, selected the winning entry, which will be printed in the official auto show program.

Established to engage the creative minds of Michigan's future artists, the 27th annual contest recognizes students from throughout the state.

"The caliber of entries speaks volumes about the creative talent in Michigan and its direct application to NAIAS and the global auto industry," said LaRiche. "Nurturing young people is not only critical to their success, but to the industry that will one day be the beneficiary of their talent. We congratulate the winning artists."
