Hot Vehicles to Support North Montco Student Careers

LANSDALE PA – Own a hot car, like a street rod? Own a cool car, like a tricked-out import? OK, maybe neither of those, but if you own a car or truck you’re proud of, like to show it off, and think it could benefit from some public love and attention, the North Montco Educational Foundation is planning an event that’s right up your alley.

The foundation has scheduled its first car show for April 9 (2022; Saturday) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Montco Technical Career Center, 1265 Sumneytown Pike. The show is a fund-raiser intended to ensure the foundation meets its mission of providing financial support for the center to “respond to emerging educational needs.”

Dozens of Perkiomen Valley School District students, as well as those from the Methacton, North Penn, Souderton, and Wissahickon districts, attend the center for hands-on training in 22 different commercial and industrial career fields. Proceeds the foundation hopes to earn through the car show help pay for programs and labs used by students, as well as local businesses that later employ them for high-in-demand skills.

Providing career and technical education can be expensive, the foundation acknowledges, but adds that “training students with relevant industry technologies is a worthy investment” for area businesses and communities. It expands students’ knowledge of their preferred trades, makes them more valuable as future employees, and boosts the local economy.

Show vehicles can be entered in four categories – imports; street rods; antiques, survivors, and classics; or trucks – at a cost of $20 per vehicle. About 50 vehicles are expected as entries, and awards will be presented. Advance registration is available online, here.

The show also will feature menu specialties offered by food trucks onsite, musical entertainment, and door prizes. Several North Montco students will put their own vehicles on display, too!

Business sponsors for the event also are being sought. For more information about sponsorships, call Denise Collins at 215-368-1177, Extension 303, or send her an e-mail to dcollins@nmtcc.org.
