 Four Michigan teams are among those selected: Lawrence Technological University, Michigan State University, Jordon College Energy Institute (Comstock Park), and Wayne State University.
 The HEV Challenge is a cooperative effort between industry and government to involve college students in an exciting contest to design, build, and test a practical hybrid electric vehicle. The contest will be held in Dearborn in June of 1993.
 The Ford HEV Challenge Workshop '92 (Feb. 28 - March 1, 1992, Hyatt Regency, Dearborn) will kick off this 16-month competition by providing each participating team with information on the Hybrid Electric Vehicle Challenge, hybrid electric vehicle technology and engineering, introducing students to Ford, DOE, and SAE representatives, and conveying program management techniques and fund-raising strategies.
 The highlight of Saturday's activities will be the official presentations of seed money.
