Young Guns Logo

The Young Guns is a designation within the overall annual SEMA Battle of the Builders® competition to recognize builders at the SEMA Show who are under the age of 27 (as of the last day of that year's SEMA Show). Those who have selected the Young Guns category in the online Battle of the Builders application, as well as young builders who are awarded a Young Guns prize package from regional competitions are eligible to participate.

The 2022 SEMA Battle of the Builders application and Young Guns regional competition schedule and locations will be available in early 2022.
