MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Young auto mechanics took part in a competition at the Auto Show downtown.
The high school students worked on cars at the annual event, backed by the Auto Dealers Association and MATC, to encourage young people to consider careers as auto technicians.
"Tech education in high schools in general has gone away," said MATC's Steve Herro. "Not just because they're not interested in tech, but 'cause it's very expensive to have an automotive program in a high school. So what we're doing at MATC is trying to provide opportunities for high school students to get involved."
Two of the six-member student teams will win a chance to go to New York and represent Wisconsin in a national auto technology competition.
