Break up the week and compete for prizes in this exciting scavenger hunt that will take you to locations (mainly along Grand River) from Brighton to Fowlerville. You’ll have about two hours to earn as many points as you can, but the true winners will be the students applying to skilled trades programs because ALL participation fees will be used to provide scholarships to qualifying graduates pursuing in-demand careers in 2019.
…and in case you wanted the backstory, here it is:
Representatives from Champion Automotive Group and Livingston Educational Service Agency were making idle chit-chat on a bus trip in their Leadership Livingston class. Somehow, talk switched from their common love of outdoor adventure activities to a lack of local, qualified, skilled trades employees. Being the fun-loving, thrill-seeking types they are, they decided to tackle the issue in a unique way by creating the Championing Futures Road Rally.
The event is intended to do four things:
1) Raise funds to create scholarships ($500 minimum) for students entering a skilled trade
2) Provide additional internship opportunities for Livingston County students
3) Offer students pursuing professional trades a path toward career/financial success
4) Close the skilled trades gap In Livingston County
