NORTH PLATTE – Isaac Ortiz of Lexington, Thedford’s Connor Burns, and Kennen Robinson, David City, hold up their Auto Body projects at North Platte Community College Wednesday, November 9.

The students placed first, second, and third, respectively, in the college’s annual hood decorating contest.

The competition provided students in the Auto Body Technology program with the opportunity to learn basic collision repair skills.

The students were given the challenge of repairing and repainting damaged vehicle hoods. Their work was then voted on by students and instructors in NPCC’s other applied technology programs.

Prizes were sponsored by LKQ Corporation. They included a paint gun set, sanding block package and infrared thermometer.
