Tesla CEO Elon Musk takes advice from a fifth grader

By now, most of the connected world is aware of the 10-year-old girl who penned a letter to Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Which gave one fifth grade girl named Bria an idea: why not have people enter their spec spots in a competition and have Tesla run the victor? She then suggests the brand runs a competition and airs the best fan-made commercial on TV.

About the Model 3, Tesla's K-10 filing says, "We expect that the next performance milestone to be achieved will be the successful completion of the Model 3 Beta Prototype, which would be achieved upon the determination by our Board of Directors that an eligible prototype has been completed".

Bria said Musk could award the victor "a year of free supercharging or a Model 3 Easter Egg".

According to MercuryNews, Musk has hinted that Tesla Inc. may have to promote the company as it spreads into new products. That is why some Tesla fans have posted videos of their electric cars.

Shortly after her father shared the letter on Twitter, Musk replied, promising to implement the idea. Musk said it sounded like a great idea and he's going to do it. Musk responded to the letter in a tweet. So her dad (myself, the author of this article) contacted one of Tesla's PR people, to speed up the process. Steven, the father who shared the letter, is a professor at Art Institute of MI and works as a journalist in a vehicle website, according to his Twitter account.
