If you are currently employed as a technician in a bona fide automotive glass company, showcase your talent and vie for the title of “World’s Best” at this year’s Auto Glass Week™ held September 30 – October 2 in Reno, Nev.
Celebrating its 10th year, the Pilkington Clear Advantage Auto Glass Technician Competition (AGTO) provides the opportunity for technicians from around the world to compete by replacing a damaged glass part. Industry veterans judge the competitors’ replacements as well as their procedures, safety, cleanliness and customer interaction. It is also a chance to learn from other professionals, execute safe, quality installations, pick up innovative techniques and, of course, compete for the chance to hold the title.
New for this year, the AGTO competition will be expanded into two categories—regular (10 technicians or less) and large businesses (more than 10 technicians). A first place will be awarded for each category. Each champion will receive $5,000, a gold medal and trophy, as well as bragging rights as the “World’s Best Auto Glass Technician.” For second and third places, competitors from both categories will be pooled. The second and third place winners could represent either a regular or large automotive glass business. The second place winner will take home $1,000 and a silver medal, and third place will receive $500 and a bronze medal.
