Students Design Trophies From Salvaged Car Parts
NEOSHO — Crowder College students in Casey Smith’s 3-D design course have designed one-of-a-kind trophies from salvaged car parts for the Roughrider Car Show and Kids Karnival, which takes place Saturday, April 28, at the college. Since the inception of the event in 2016, Smith has integrated trophy design into her curriculum. Students visit salvage yards to collect parts and pieces, develop a design, and construct and paint the trophies.
“Each year the trophies are a huge hit with car show participants, not only because they are so unique, but because they showcase the talent of our art students so well. Participants really appreciate knowing that the trophies have been part of the students’ learning experience at Crowder College,” said assistant director of resource development and alumni relations Haley Reardon.
Those interested in pre-registering a vehicle may do so by visiting crowder. edu/foundation by Friday, April 27.
