(SMP) has announces the winners of its sixth-annual Intermotor ‘Import Leader’ Automotive Scholarship Contest: Jackson Dietrich, of St. Charles, Illinois; Logan Peterson, of Litchfield, Minnesota; Korbyn Cowan, of Sand Springs, Oklahoma; and Jessica Kenyon, of Westborough, Massachusetts.

All four winners will receive a $5,000 scholarship to apply toward their education in automotive technology or repair with a focus on import vehicles at a technical school or college.

Commenting on the announcement, John Herc, vice president Engine Management Marketing, stated, “SMP is proud to continue its history of supporting up-and-coming import automotive technicians. Judging from the winners and the rest of our applicants, it’s clear to see our industry has a bright future.”
