Rev up the votes!
Submitted By Allison Aldinger, MVROP
The Mission Valley Regional Occupational Program (MVROP) Automotive Technology Program, located on the Washington High campus, created and submitted a video to the Universal Technical Institute (UTI) Foundation's "Drive to Succeed" contest. The contest requires interested Automotive Technology programs to submit a three minute video demonstrating their need for the potential donation towards an automotive shop makeover of up to $25,000 for first place, $10,000 for second place, and $5,000 for third place. Out of the 70 videos that were submitted for consideration of this prize money, our video has made it to the top eight video finalists.
The next step in the contest is where the community has a chance to help decide the winner of the prize money. So now is the time to "Rev up the Votes" and help our students win the contest!
The UTI Foundation has posted the final top eight videos on their Facebook page to allow the public to vote for their favorite video. To vote, by the January 18, noon MST deadline, please refer to the instructions listed below.
