Interested technicians and shop owners are encouraged to contact the editorial staff for details.

Professional Tool and Equipment News (PTEN) is seeking automotive shop owners and technicians for the PTEN 2016 Innovation Awards judging panel.

Each year, PTEN organizes a panel comprised of industry experts from across the country to share their opinion of the newest tool in the market. The Innovation Awards are presented to recognize new tools that bring something a little bit special to the world of automotive service.

Judges are asked to rate the nominees based on the product's ability make vehicle diagnosis and repair easier and more efficient, and make shops more productive. Judges rank the tool or piece of equipment for time savings, task simplification, uniqueness, level of improvement over current tool and ease of use.

Judges must have access to a computer to complete the online surveys. Participants selected for the judging panel are eligible to receive a $50 Visa gift card upon full completion of the survey questions.

If you are interested in being a judge for the 2016 Innovation Awards or would like more information, please contact editor Erica Schulz-Schueller at [email protected] or assistant editor Josh Smith at [email protected].
