SEMA and BringaTrailer.com will auction five Jeep Wranglers starting July 15, 2019. The event, called SEMA Week of Customs, is part of SEMA’s high school build program. The Jeeps were customized by high school students working with industry volunteers and manufacturers. They feature the latest in off-road parts from a variety of manufacturers.
Money raised from the auctions will fund future SEMA student projects. This program is part of a growing SEMA program that provides students with real-world educational experiences in the automotive industry. The builds were funded by a SEMA program that started in the 2017-2018 school year with just a single build. The Jeep auctioned off last year brought in $56,000. SEMA was able to expand the program to five high schools this year.
“We didn’t know what to expect during our first year. We’re encouraged and excited that we were able to expand and grow the program. We’re anxious and hoping that the community will see the positive results that came from the pilot program, and that they will come out and support the program again this year,” said Zane Clark, SEMA Senior Director of Education.
One Jeep will be released every day for five days beginning on July 15th. Bidders can go to BringaTrailer.com.
