HACK! gives three awards each year during the Houston Art Car Parade Awards Ceremony
~ For Shelley Buschur Memorial ArtCarBarbie Fashion Award to recognize the person who 'brings the look' all parade weekend long. Selection is made by the judges with your HACK Madam Presidents and advisors. Shelley was known for her outrageous and fantastic art car weekend costumes, and this award is for those who continue the tradition to ROCK IT with style and theme and matching their artcars during parade weekend. And who brings everyone else along for the ride. We miss you Shelley!2022 we added the
~ In 2010, we added an award for the member who comes to the aid of anyone in need, at any time. The Jeff Towns Memorial Award. The person who drops what they are doing to help out another person in our vast artcar community of friends. From fixing a flat tire, to rebuilding all or part of anything under the hood of your car, to someone who holds your hand in bad times... this award celebrates the helping hand. Jeff Towns was that kind of person.
~ In 2004, HACK created the Brother BrianBryan Memorial Award to recognize the meritorious service of a member of the Klub for devotion to the Klub, artcars and going above and beyond in promoting the positive ideals of an artcar daily-driver lifestyle to the community at large. The one who walks the walk... as manifested by so many daily drivers, BrianBryan being one of the firsts.
