WIX® Filters, a member of the Affinia Group family of brands, has partnered with Tomorrow’s Technician as the title sponsor for the 2010/2011 School of the Year competition. Students, teachers, parents and school administrators are encouraged to nominate their programs for the 2011 School of the Year award by December 31, 2010 at www.ttschooloftheyear.com

“As a longtime supporter of technician education, WIX is excited to take a leadership role in the 2010/2011 School of the Year program,” said Jeff Blocher, brand manager for WIX Filters, which was an associate sponsor of last year’s competition. “The School of the Year program is a great opportunity for schools nationwide to gain exposure for their programs and receive accolades for their work educating future technicians.”

In addition to nationwide recognition, four regional winners will receive a commemorative trophy, WIX filters, filtration education opportunities, branded gear and shop banners. The School of the Year will be recognized during a special ceremony at their school in spring 2011.
