“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.
