The Weber State University Automotive Contest is an annual contest for high school automotive students. Top scoring automotive high school seniors from Utah and the surrounding states come to compete for scholarships, tools, and a vehicle for their school.  The contest was started in 1987, and was coordinated for 17 years (1988-2004) by Rondo Erickson as a recruiting tool for the WSU Automotive Technology Program.
