The North American International Auto Show announced the launch of its annual poster contest on Friday.

Now in its 30th year, the contest was created to engage the creative inds of Michigan's high school students and encourage careers in automotive design.

For the 2017 contest, NAIAS received 890 entries from 70 high schools across the state.

"It is amazing to me that with nearly 1,000 entries, each one is very unique and I enjoy seeing how they represent our great show in their works," said Ryan LaFontaine, 2018 NAIAS chairman.

The poster contest is open to all Michigan students enrolled in grades 10 through 12.

An independent panel of judges, including College for Creative Studies instructors, automaker designers and State Farm representatives, will review the submissions and select the winning posters.

The winning posters will be displayed at NAIAS 2018 and reproduced in the official NAIAS program, which is available to all auto show attendees.

Winning posters will also be displayed on the official NAIAS website.

The poster theme must be automotive related. The entry deadline is Nov. 21.
