I was contacted by rep from Scion about their new car customization competition, “Battle of the Builds,” made to showcase and salute our country’s finest. The contest taps into the creativity, teamwork and can do attitude of today’s U.S. Military personnel and challenges them to design and construct their ideal xB in just 12 weeks.
A total of 25 semi-finalist teams have already been selected based on their proposals for customizing a Scion xB on a $15,000 budget – they can be viewed at http://www.battleofthebuilds.com/. Now through June 30th (today), everyone can show their support by voting for their favorite customized xB to select three finalists to make their vision a reality. The winning team will be invited to showcase their modified xB at the 2010 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.
Outside of this fun design challenge, Scion is also committed to working closely with Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps commercial sponsorship units and base Auto Skills Centers.
So if you could take a few minutes out of your day to vote, I am sure you would make a lot of people happy.
