DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (Sept. 18, 2017) – SEMA launched a new program designed to support and engage high school students in the automotive hobby. As part of the pilot program, high school students will oversee and execute an entire project vehicle, including tracking time, expenses and associated resources, using a used vehicle purchased and donated by SEMA. The project will create a self-sustaining program with the completed vehicle sold to raise money for the purchase of another vehicle that can be used for a similar project the following school year.
The SEMA Show Student Program offers educators the opportunity to invite qualified and motivated students to attend the annual SEMA Show. The primary objective is to provide students with unique learning experiences that integrate their fields of study with actual business and tradeshow opportunities in the automotive specialty-equipment market.
More than 30 MBA students from Le CNAM, a graduate school in Paris, France, visited the SEMA Headquarters in Diamond Bar, California, to learn about the business behind running SEMA.
