The Battle of the Builders Young Guns competition returns to the 2018 SEMA Show October 30 - November 2, 2018. This year, SEMA will host a Young Guns qualifying round at all three 4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals events - awarding one winner from each of the Lima, Bloomsburg and Indianapolis events an expense-paid trip to the SEMA Show to compete in the national Battle of the Builders Young Guns competition.

Will It Be You?

If you're age 27 or younger by the end of this year's SEMA Show (November 2, 2018) and you built your 4x4 primarily on your own, then you're eligible. It's free to compete as long as you are a registered participant of one of the qualifying 4-Wheel Jamborees. Yes - it's that easy!
