The San Antonio Auto and Truck Show will present the 2014 College Challenge from 2-3 p.m. Nov. 8 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

Students participating in the challenge will have to see how many of them can squeeze into the displayed vehicles. The school fitting the most students in a car will be the winner.

This will be the event’s second year. Last year, the University of Texas at San Antonio won the College Challenge by fitting 13 students into one vehicle. The prizes this year will be the 2014 Championship Cup and a $250 donation to a charity of their choice.

Crystal Moncivais, outreach coordinator for Sammis & Ochoa Public Relations Agency, said it is rewarding to see students participate in charitable events. The challenge “(allows) the different generations to be exposed to these types of auto and show events,” she said.

Multiple vendors will have cars and trucks on display at the show, which is Nov. 6-9 and is open to the public. Tickets range from $8 to $10, but students participating in the challenge will get free admission. Students can park for free at the Alamodome and take a free shuttle ride to the convention center.

To register for free, email Crystal Moncivais at or call 210-844-8309.
