The deadline for nominations is Sept. 27, 2019.
Launched three years ago, the Collision Student of the Year award seeks to recognize truly outstanding students training for a career in the collision industry. Nominated students must currently be studying collision repair/refinishing at a school that has completed the Foundation’s 2019-2020 Collision Repair School Solutions Survey.
“We encourage instructors to recognize the academic achievement, collision repair and refinish training success and drive of their best students with a nomination for the award,” said Melissa Marscin, director of operations/administration for the Foundation.
Instructors who would like to nominate a student can download a nomination form from the Foundation’s website.
In addition to an instructor endorsement, students must submit a one-minute video to the Foundation explaining his/her academic and collision course achievements, future plans for his/her career and why he/she enjoys being in the collision industry.
Winners of the Collision Student of the Year award and their instructors must be able to attend the Foundation’s reception on Nov. 5 at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The award will cover two nights of hotel, each for the instructor and for the student, airfare (or mileage if driving), and meals.
