Submit Your Nomination for 2013 School of the Year by Late August

Online nominations for the 2013 Tomorrow’s Tech School of the Year program ends Aug. 26.

Online nominations for the 2013 Tomorrow’s Tech School of the Year program ends Aug. 26.

The contest, sponsored by O’Reilly Auto Parts and WIX Filters, recognizes the excellence in technical training and education in the nation’s automotive programs.

“We are excited to continue our partnerships to support all aspects of the automotive-aftermarket industry,” said Mike Harvey, brand manager for WIX Filters.

“Each year we see high-caliber nominations from the best technical schools and we look forward to reviewing top-of-the-line school nominations for 2013.”

To nominate a school, visit:

http://ttschooloftheyear.com/NominationForm and fill out the short questionnaire.

Judging 
The staff at Tomorrow’s Tech reviews the online entry that is submitted, be it from a student, instructor, school administrator or any automotive industry professional, and uses content from the comments section: "reasons for nomination."

Staff then visit the schools’ website for photos and more information on their auto program, as well as search the internet for local stories/articles about the school and its students.

Also, if they have been a top school in the past, judges review materials/videos that they submitted in previous years.

The Top 20 Schools list is created from that process and those schools are named in September issue of Tomorrow’s Tech.

Students, instructors and school faculty are then requested to create a video about their automotive program which will be hosted on the Tomorrow’s Tech YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/tomorrowstechnician.

Judges from Tomorrow’s Tech, WIX Filters and O’Reilly Auto Parts review the videos from the Top 20 schools to narrow the selection down to four regional finalists that will be named in the October issue of the magazine and online via social media.

About the School of the Year program
The School of the Year program (www.ttschooloftheyear.com), a national search to find and name the best technician training school in the country, is open to all high schools or post-secondary schools that have a subscription to Tomorrow’s Tech magazine.

Judges review entry criteria and select the top school from each of the four regions in the U.S.

The winner will be selected from the four finalists and announced at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in November.
