LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. -- Lee's Summit West High School is once again the home of the traveling trophy for the Sci-Automotive Crazy Car Art Contest. Junior Logan Triplett got the surprising news during school when he was called down to the art room.

"I really like making things that I can express my own creativity," said Triplett. "I thought making this car design would be amazing."

Triplett's crazy car design beat out nearly 50 other entries from area high school student artists with a total of 750 votes.

It's the second year in a row a student of art teacher Bob Klausing's has won the top honors.  Klausing's says he wanted to find students who were interested in this type of art.

"Bottom line is that not everybody wants to draw cars," said Klausing.  "I knew both, last year`s winner and this year`s winner had abilities to be able to draw mechanical things."

Both Triplett and Klausing receive a check for $250. Triplett's design is also featured on a  billboard and will stay up for a month at the intersection of Route 350 and Raytown Road.
