2017 Concours d'Elegance - Youth Car Judging

6/13/2017

This event marks the sixth year of the Ault Park Concours d’Elegance Youth Judging Program.

A small group of cars are pre-selected to be scored by the Youth Judges, who also present awards to their top three vehicle choices. Participants have the opportunity to interact with car owners, carefully inspect each car and make the determination of their favorites based on the scoring criteria. The program continues to grow in popularity, with multiple children requesting to return as a judge.

Hagerty Insurance provides the official judging gear including T-shirts, hats and scorecards and helps educate our youth judges about the cars and evaluation criteria. Lunch is provided for the youth judge and one parent/guardian. This program has room for only 25 children between the ages of 8 and 15. It is required that each child be accompanied by one parent/guardian for the event.

Thank you to Genentech for supporting our camps for children with arthritis. We are very grateful!
