FCA Drive for Design Contest Ends April 27th!

The FCA Drive for Design contest was first launched in 2013. At that time, only Detroit-area students were able to enter. Now, open on a national level, more than 25 students have won the contest. This week, we catch up with two past winners, Alex Fischer and Josh Blundo.

In 2014, students were asked to design a vehicle that satisfied the needs of young consumers while remaining eco-friendly. Alex Fischer submitted the winning sketch. The contest gave Alex the confidence he needed to pursue a career in automotive design. In 2017, Alex joined FCA as a design intern in the Dodge//SRT design studio and has since graduated from the College for Creative Studies (CCS).

The following year, in 2015, students were asked to submit a sketch of their vision of the Dodge brand. Josh Blundo took the top prize that year. Josh also joined FCA as a design intern in the Dodge//SRT design studio and is studying at CCS today.

The main goal of the Drive for Design contest is to increase awareness and educate students and parents about the good-paying opportunities available in this field. Many of today’s designers had no idea that automotive design could be a career option and the FCA design team wants to change that.

Think you have what it takes to be a car designer? You have one week left to submit your sketch! The FCA Product Design Team is challenging high school students grades 10-12 to sketch the ultimate status vehicle using any FCA brand.
