COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A local high school auto club is looking to keep a prestigious national award in the state of Georgia. 

Jordan High School's Auto Club has been chosen out of 55 different schools across five states as a semi-finalist for the Quaker State Best in Class Challenge. 

The students will have to restore a Ford Mustang only with the amount of money given to them. 

Last year a team from Georgia won, and Jordan’s team hopes the award stays in state this year as well. 

“The whole goal is to get our students to be as interested as they can possibly be in automotive repair,” said Robert Harris, automotive instructor at Jordan High School. 

“It's an honor to be chosen out of lots of schools that were voted for within the whole United States,” said Joseph Craigen, 11th grade. 

The team consists of 11 students, and the competition runs Tuesday, Oct. 11th through Wednesday, Nov. 16.
