ATEQ TPMS Tools and Jeff Buckley, owner of My Father’s Shop, have named Rolling Meadows High School and Okeechobee High School as the winners of the “Back to School” Giveaway.

During the giveaway, ATEQ and Buckley collaborated on Facebook to give away two VT36 TPMS tools to the high schools, technical centers or colleges that received the most votes. Communities voted for 18 different schools to win one of the tools, generating more than 3,600 submissions during the contest.

During Friday’s Facebook Live post announcing the winners, Jeff Buckley also surprised Klein Forest High School, announcing he would also give a VT36 TPMS tool away to the third place winner. Sheila Stevens, marketing manager at ATEQ TPMS Tools, also surprised the first place winners, Rolling Meadows High School, by upgrading the winning prize from a VT36 activation and programming tool to a VT56 Diagnostic TPMS tool with OBDII module kit. Additionally, Stevens will hand-deliver the tool to the school and teach the students how to use it on Sept. 7, 2018.

The Top 10 schools include:

  • Winner: Rolling Meadows High School, Rolling Meadows, Illinois (1,840 votes)
