Standard Motor Products (SMP) has announced the winners of its Blue Streak “Stronger Than Ever” Automotive Scholarship Competition: Christopher Olds of Metropolitan Community College; Hunter Curry of NASCAR Technical Institute; and Lucas Wilmore of Southern Illinois University.

All three winners will receive a $5,000 scholarship to apply toward the pursuit or continuation of an education in automotive technology and repair at a technical school or college. The three winners were chosen from a pool of more than 900 students who entered the competition.

Students were asked to complete an online questionnaire and submit a current photo of themselves.
