WIX Filters Sponsors Tomorrow’s Technician’s ‘2013 School Of The Year’ Competition

Schools can enter competition to name best technician training program in country at www.ttschooloftheyear.com.

GASTONIA, N.C. — WIX Filters and O’Reilly Auto Parts have partnered with Tomorrow’s Technician as title sponsors for the “2013 School of the Year” competition, a national contest to find and name the best technician training school in the country. Schools can nominate their programs for the award by Aug. 26 at www.ttschooloftheyear.com.

“WIX is proud to support of the ‘School of the Year’ competition promoting excellence in education,” said Mike Harvey, brand manager for WIX Filters. “The ‘School of the Year’ program continues to grow each year showcasing the best in technician education and we look forward to seeing this year’s entries of future technicians.”

The School of the Year program is open to all high schools or post-secondary schools that have a subscription to Tomorrow’s Technician. Twenty finalists will be announced after all submissions are received on Aug. 26. Judges will then review entry criteria and select the top school from each of the four regions in the U.S. – or the Final Four. The winner will be selected from the four finalists and announced in October.

The winning school will receive a visit by Tomorrow’s Technician staff and program sponsors; $2,500 WIX Filters donation to the school’s program; O’Reilly and WIX Filters gear (hats, backpacks, key chains, shop banners and T-shirts, product samples); and an appearance by either the WIX or O’Reilly Auto Parts mobile marketing unit. In addition, the winning school’s instructor and guest will travel to Las Vegas and attend a Babcox Media recognition dinner at AAPEX in November.

Each school that is nominated will receive national recognition on Tomorrow’s Technician’s website, as well as through social media outlets. Schools that are selected to the Final Four receive a professional automotive tool set from O’Reilly Auto Parts and a $250 gift card from O’Reilly Auto Parts.
