Can The LA Auto Show Help Your Kid Get Into Harvard? (video)

The LA Auto Show is known for one thing & one thing only..cars. But it is so much more than that. What if I told you that it was indeed a deeply rich educational experience that may just lead to Ivy League endorsement. Well, Harvard may not be convinced, but it’s worth a go!
