Photograph caption dated July 24, 1962 reads, "Industrial arts instructors and professional designers have begun the careful task of determining winners in the $177,000 scholarship competition among young young [sic] auto body designers, sponsored by the Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild. This array of models is only a fraction of entries in the 32nd annual model car competition and represents a keen insight into what the youngsters of today want to drive tomorrow. State and Regional winners are now being selected. Regional winners will be invited to Detroit, Mich., July 31-Aug. 3 where 18 scholarships will be awarded the winning model craftsmen."
