May 8, 2020—Three students from Michigan and California placed at the top in FCA's Drive for Design contest, according to a FCA press release.
This year's ten week competition had students sketch a Ram truck for the future.
The student winners of the competition are:
- First place – Job Skandera, Santa Clara, Calif.
- Second place – Vincent Piaskowski, Birmingham, Mich.
- Third place – Alex David Kirschmann, Auburn Hills, Mich.

Drive for Design was introduced in 2013 as a way to educate young artists about careers in automotive design.
For a couple of years, California has been an epicenter of innovative vehicle design and testing. Michigan has also been testing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) on vehicles at places like the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute.
