Twenty-three teams will participate in the 16th annual Junior Achievement Mini Corvette Challenge this year. Each team is paired up with a local school, encouraging students to come cheer on their school’s vehicle.
“The kids get super excited,” said Laura Goodman, program manager for Junior Achievement.
This race marks the single largest fundraising event for the Junior Achievement organization – collecting more than $400,000 in 15 years! This year, there are twenty-one sponsors for the each car in the race (Dollar General and U.S. Bank each sponsoring two cars).
The race will take place:
Date: Saturday, May 8
Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location: National Corvette Museum’s west parking lot
Though U.S. Bank has been a defending champion for quite some time. Will they win again this year? You’ll just have to wait to find out!
