Award Programs Support Excellence at Every Level of Automotive Repair Industry

WIX® Filters is partnering with Babcox Media to sponsor the 2013 Tomorrow’s Technician’s School of the Year, Counterman’s Counter Professional of the Year and the Babcox TechGroup Best Tech program supporting excellence at every level of the automotive repair industry.

“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 school, counter professionals and technicians and we look forward to reviewing top-of-the-line industry professionals and school nominations for 2013.”

The School of the Year program (www.ttschooloftheyear), a national search to find and name the best technician training school in the country with O’Reilly Auto Parts as a partner, is open to all high schools or post-secondary schools that have a subscription to Tomorrow’s Technician. Judges will then 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. This is the sixth year a school will be recognized.

The Counter Professional of the Year award (www.counterman.com/cpoty.aspx) recognizes an automotive aftermarket parts professional who goes above the call of duty; continually seeks out education for himself or herself; is an example of the consummate parts professional; and is an ambassador for the aftermarket. This year will be the 28th year that Counterman magazine has named its Counter Professional of the Year, sponsored by Affinia Group Inc., Raybestos Chassis and WIX.

The Wix Driving Performance Award recognizes the skills and professionalism of today’s automotive technicians, from demonstrating excellence in the automotive service industry to engaging in the local community. This is the third year a recipient will be recognized.
