    Entries and Finalists

    Compositions by Jacob Brooks '18 (music business major), Kyle Bronson '19 (physical therapy major), and David DiPrimo '19, (visual communication design major) were chosen as the winners.

    "Today's students, they etch their own way, and Elio is trying to do the same thing. So the tie-in between the student body and Elio motors is a good tie-in."
