The student competitors are from Ada, Norman County West, Wahpeton, Valley City, Moorhead, Fergus Falls, Jamestown and Fargo South high schools.

M State automotive students judge the 12 separate stations set up to test the high school students’ automotive knowledge, with students given 14 minutes at each station. Participants also must take a 35-question written exam. Tools are donated by vendors for prizes.

M State automotive instructor is Dennis Miller.
