Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association award winners

Students earn fourth and fifth place prizes at auto competition

A select group of Automotive Technology students made their mark at a competition sponsored by the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association held Jan. 8. They took home fourth and fifth-place prizes.

Students Giovanni Triolo and Brian Tejada worked together through several stations at the competition that required different skills and were awarded a fourth-place prize. Nicolas Renzo joined them as an alternate and was kept busy with his own tests.

In addition, Victor Aquino and Paolo Renzo returned from the competition with a fifth-place prize, with Nicolas again serving as an alternate.

Participants were tested on heating systems, transmissions and finding the specs of different type of cars in a competition consisting of both mechanical components and writing.

In addition to a trophy, winners received hats, t-shirts and a Snap-On screwdriver. They also came away with a $2,000 Lincoln Technical Institute Whitestone Scholarship, a $2,000 Lincoln Institute East Windsor, CT Scholarship and a $500 Ohio Technical College Scholarship.
