From Martin Molina’s article on the East Valley Tribune website:

Ten teams of Arizona high school students tried their hand at fixing cars for scholarships in the first ever Arizona High School Automotive Challenge. 

Each team consisted of two students who worked to diagnose and repair eight issues on a 2016 Nissan Sentra within an hour and a half. The competition, sponsored by ABC Nissan, was held at Mesa Community College on April 22.

Maricopa Community Colleges with automotive programs, including Mesa, Glendale and GateWay, created the Arizona High School Automotive Challenge when Ford/AAA Auto Skills announced they would no longer be hosting their long-held state and national competitions in September last year.
