This Friday 30 October, students from 13 local primary schools who have been participating in the inaugural Silver Star Motors Pedal Car Design Challenge; a new, innovative and exciting, team based challenge, designed to encourage creativity and design innovation, will present their final Mercedes-Benz pedal car creations and supporting mood boards to a panel of judges at Silver Star Motors Doncaster, for the chance to win one of the three available prizes; the ‘Creativity and Design Innovation Award’.
This exciting new local initiative was open to students from 5-12 years of age. Each of the 13 schools is competing to win one or two, of three school grants from Silver Star Motors and supporting partners Mercedes-Benz Financial and Westfield Doncaster, worth $3,000 each.
As part of the Challenge, students were encouraged to experiment with all creative mediums to transform their cars into a work of art and their dream Mercedes-Benz.
The winner will be announced at 10.45am on Wednesday 4 November at the official launch of the 10-day exhibition at Silver Star Motors Doncaster.
