Each school receives national recognition on the Tomorrow’s Tech website and print edition, as well as through social media channels. Schools that are selected to the Final 4 will receive a professional automotive tool set and a $250 gift card from O’Reilly Auto Parts.
This is the eighth annual search to find the best technical training school in the U.S. The program is open to high schools or post-secondary schools that have a subscription to Tomorrow’s Tech.
