Thu, 09 Dec 2010

Michelin and the College for Creative Studies (CCS) in Detroit, Michigan recently held their 22nd Annual College for Creative Studies Design Competition at the A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education. Four CCS transportation students are receiving the exhibition opportunity of a lifetime when their winning designs are displayed in a special Michelin exhibit at the 2011 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) January 10-23, 2011.

Thirty-one CCS students entered this year's Challenge, each submitting a pickup truck vehicle concept and a tire/wheel assembly under the theme 'Plus 10:  The Best is Yet to Come.'  For the past ten years, the CCS competition theme has mirrored Michelin’s global competition, Michelin Challenge Design.

The winning CCS students' work will join 34 other designs representing 22 different countries selected in the global Michelin Challenge Design competition at the prestigious auto show.

Judges for this year's event included Joe Dehner and Jeff Aneiros from Chrysler, Brad Richards from Ford, Sung Paik from General Motors and Bob Miron and Ken Payne from Michelin.

This year's Michelin/CCS winners included, in the Vehicle Design category, first place prize winner Kelly Stieler from Lake Orion, Michigan; second place winner Vaughan Ling from Miami, Florida; and Timothy Mann of Minneapolis, Minnesota, who took home third place. Kelly Stieler also won first place in the Tire/Wheel Concept category while Jose Casas from Mexico City, Mexico, and Timothy Mann again garnered the third place accolade.
