Club is seeking car show registrants and vendors

Temple College’s SkillsUSA STEM Club is hosting its second annual Temple College STEM Club Car Show from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 3 on the campus’ south parking lot.

Registration is open and all car and bike classes are welcome. The club is also seeking vendors, including small businesses, direct sellers, crafts, homemade items, snacks and more.

All proceeds from the Car Show will go to the Temple College STEM Club to assist with upcoming competitions. The Club is also accepting toy donations for Ronald McDonald House and McLane Children’s Hospital.

In April, the club was named the Texas Gold Chapter of Distinction – the highest honor a chapter can receive – at the state competition. Chapter members also won first-place honors in four areas, including Engineering Technology Design, Additive Manufacturing, Photography and Chapter Business Procedure. At the national competition in the summer, students capture the gold medal in Engineering/Technology Design.

“We are excited to host this event for the second year in a row, and with the funds raised we’re hoping to travel and win big at the state and national competitions again in 2023!” said SkillsUSA STEM Club President Adrianna Rogers.

Car show participants and vendors may register online. Car show participants may also register the day of the event from 9-11 a.m. All car show participants must provide a copy of automobile liability insurance.

Top prizes and specialty awards will be handed out. The first 30 car show registrants will receive a gift bag.

All car show participants and vendors can pay online via PayPal.
