DETROIT (AP) — Mayor Mike Duggan and Shell are scheduled to recognize students from the University of Detroit Jesuit High School and the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor who are building energy efficient vehicles as part of a global competition.

Shell says the students will test drive their built-from-scratch ultra-fuel-efficient vehicles Thursday morning at Cobo Center in downtown Detroit.

They will compete in late April in the Shell Eco-marathon Americas 2014 in Houston. Last year's winner recorded 3,587 miles on one gallon of gasoline.
