Program Aims to Find the Best Technician Training School in the U.S.
WIX® Filters is once again partnering with
O’Reilly Auto Parts as title sponsors for Tomorrow’s Technician 2020 School of the Year competition, a national contest that finds and names the best technician training school in the country. WIX and O’Reilly Auto Parts are sponsors of the national award in conjunction with Tomorrow’s Tech, a Babcox Media property dedicated to automotive students.
The School of the Year competition is open to all high schools or post-secondary schools that have a subscription to the publication. Nominations are open from Feb. 21 through Aug. 3, and twenty finalists will be announced after all submissions are received. Judges will then review entry criteria and select the top school from each of the four regions of the U.S. The winner will be selected from the four finalists and announced in the fall.
“This year, WIX Filters is excited to double our cash prize to $10,000, because we understand the crucial importance of trade schools in this country,” said Mike Lerch, brand manager for WIX Filters. “WIX is committed to quality and innovation, and this program is a prime opportunity to find teachers and students who strive for excellence. We are honored to support them on their future career paths.”
The winning school will receive a visit from Tomorrow’s Tech staff and program sponsors, a $10,000 WIX Filters donation to the school’s program, WIX Filters gear, and an appearance by the WIX mobile marketing unit*.
In addition, the winning school’s instructor and guest will travel to Las Vegas and attend the AAPEX and SEMA shows as well as the Babcox Media recognition dinner in November*.
The Top 20 schools will receive national recognition on the Tomorrow’s Tech website, in the magazine and on various social media platforms. Schools selected as a runner-up will each receive a $500 gift card from WIX.

*Winnings, including the availability of the mobile marketing and travel, will be dependent on the safety measures enacted as a result of COVID-19.
