The contest judges have announced the four finalists from the 2012 Tomorrow’s Technician School of the Year competition, sponsored by O’Reilly Auto Parts and WIX Filters.
The top schools from each of the regions are:
San Diego Continuing Education in San Diego
Chipola College in Marianna, Fla.;
Clover Park Technical College in Lakewood, Wash; and
Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport, Pa.
These four schools will vie for the title of School of the Year, as well as prizes and donations from the sponsors of the annual program. The winning school will be announced later in October.
Judges have reviewed binders and/or videos submitted by the Top 25 schools.
The Top 25 schools were named in September.
The judges, which include staff from Tomorrow’s Technician, WIX Filters and O’Reilly Auto Parts, report that they are close to naming the 2012 winner from the four finalists.
An article in the November issue of Tomorrow’s Technician will highlight the winning school’s automotive program.
