High School Challenge and Scholarship
This fantastic Portland Roadster Show tradition continues! See the best rides from our Portland and Vancouver area High Schools. Each school has an annual contest to choose the hottest ride. You'll see a collection of the winners only at the Portland Roadster Show. Many of these young men and women are the future of the Northwest rodding scene. Be sure to vote for your favorite!




Pride In Performance Awards
Les Schwab and the Multnomah Hot Rod Council are sponsoring two $500.00 "Pride In Performance" awards. These awards are to be presented to Local High School Automotive Programs based on their students' Participation in the High School Challenge. They will be judged on Excellence in Presentation and School Spirit.



 Pedal Car Auction:
See the amazing craftsmanship of better than 20 local high school and community college automotive programs as they have customized pedal cars that will be auctioned off and the proceeds go back equally to all of the programs that participate.




Childrens Cancer Association Wagons for Kids:
Try to keep a dry eye as you meet young people going through the battle of their life as they receive a pull wagon that has been customized by local automotive shops and high school automotive programs.  Each child picks out "their" wagon, and then the pinstripers that are competing in the Brush Bash, personalize it with the childs name and any other special things that make it their own.  We at the Portland Roadster Show and the Multnomah Hot Council could not be more proud of this event and hope it brings just a little bit of joy to these courageuos kids.
