NEXTRANS received more than 80 submissions by high school students from across Indiana, which were judged blindly by a panel of transportation scholars, Purdue Discovery Park officials, and the NEXTRANS Center staff. The goal of this competition was to encourage 9-12 grade students to consider how integral transportation is to the future of Indiana and our nation, and interest them in pursuing transportation-related careers and/or higher education in the field.
