Allgemeine information

Hyundai Motors Manufacturing Alabama presents the SCORE Showdown VRC Signature Event at Auburn University.

This unique event offers High School students the opportunity to compete against the hemisphere's best teams, while offering the opportunity for them to begin exploring their college options! More detailed information will be sent in the registration email. 

The Auburn-Opelika area is ideally located in Southeast Alabama, approximately 100 miles from both the Atlanta & Birmingham airports. Attractions include Chewacla State Park, with over 600 acres to explore, and the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art which features changing exhibition galleries. Auburn is also home to Auburn University, with more than 150 undergraduate majors spread over 12 colleges. Take part in Auburn's many traditions such as taking a trip to downtown Auburn to get a Toomer’s Lemonade or visit the corner where the Auburn Tigers roll the oaks after a big win.  Both Auburn and Opelika are great places for shopping and dining. Additional family attractions include bowling, movie theatres, a pinball arcade, escape rooms, ax throwing and more!
