SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The nonprofit TechForce Foundation has created the Techs Rock Awards to recognize professional technicians for excellence in their work and communities. The awards will recognize working technicians who are striving to mentor and inspire the next generation of service professionals, bringing excellence to their workplaces and communities, and demonstrating passion and commitment to the profession.
“It’s inspiring to witness so many outstanding transportation techs from across the country making such huge impacts on both their communities and their organizations,” said Jennifer Maher, executive director of TechForce Foundation.
“These talented men and women are pioneers of the modern transportation era who are showing us firsthand that a career as a tech is no longer simply about wrenches and oil, but rather advanced equipment and technology requiring sophisticated, high-tech training,” Maher added. “And they’re helping future techs think bigger and act bolder.”
The 2018 Techs Rock Awards are accepting submissions via the TechForce Foundation website through Friday, Nov. 30, at 4:00 p.m. PT.
