Teacher Jim Cassandro helps Alec Hiben, second from the right, and Jon Lang, far right, both 15 and from Ross Township, with their model car on Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013 during a 'Concept Car Design' class at North Hills Senior High School. The car will be used for a contest at the school. Vehicles will be judged by North Hills alumni and auto engineers based on criteria such as financial planning, marketing, target demographic, advertising, professionalism and overall design. In past years, students entered vehicles in outside contests that since have been discontinued, so Cassandro is holding his own, which will have a first prize of $100.
