The artwork of Michigan high-school students will be featured at the upcoming 2014 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS).

The annual high school poster contest, held in conjunction with the show, drew a record 989 entries from 73 high schools across the state.

The grand prize, the Chairman's Award of $1,000, will be presented to Lindsey Simon, a 12th grade student at Romeo Engineering and Technology Center in Washington, Mich.

Simon's poster will be printed in the official NAIAS program.

"The record number of entries speaks volumes about interest in NAIAS and global auto industry," said NAIAS 2014 Chairman, Bob Shuman.  "What is especially important is that these students exhibited the creative talent that is so critical to the success of this industry."

All winning entries will be posted on the official NAIAS website, www.naias.com, and will be on display January 18-26 at the NAIAS at Cobo Center in Detroit.
