SMP looking for next tech star

Standard Motor Products has announced the kick-off of its Standard Tech Star Challenge. One winner will get the grand prize designed to supply everything needed to start a YouTube channel dedicated to automotive.

Running until July 31, contestants need to upload a video of an under the hood one-minute tech tip to the video-sharing suite with the hashtag #StandardTechStar in the video’s description. The winner will be chosen by SMP’s training department.

The grand prize winner will get an all-expenses paid trip for two to SMP’s Irving, Tex. Training center. The winner will record three install videos with the company’s director of training and YouTube Tech Star Ryan Kooiman. The videos will be posted to SMP’s video channel, which has more than three million views and 4,000 subscribers. The winner will also get $5,000 towards video equipment and automotive tools to start a YouTube channel of their own.

Two second prize winners will get $1,500 towards tools and equipment while five third place winners will get a Go-Pro camera. The fist 500 people who enter will get a hat.

“Standard has always been proud to recognize and support the professional technician community, and our Standard Tech Star Challenge is an exciting way to do just that,” said Phil Hutchens, vice president engine management marketing at SMP.

The contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada, excluding Quebec.
