I was recently at the Keeneland Concours in Lexington Ky for their annual show. A fine thing they do is have a group of young folks judge a class. These youngsters were about 13 years old, and, each had a judging sheet to fill in. Yes, there was a girl in the group.
Since this year they used the Ford Mustang as the featured car, they all judged the 65 through 70 Shelby Mustangs, in which there was eight to do. The group (6 members or so) had a host adult person with to guide the participants car to car so they all stayed together. I'm not sure age thirteen is a good age to start at, but it seemed to sew the seeds of interest in judging classic cars with an eye toward future interest.
The was a "young judge's award" given to the best scoring car the youngsters chose.
I think the MCA might want to look into this, and, it is not too late to do this at the remaining MCA National shows left in this year.
