This year’s Auto Glass Week™ will once again include the Pilkington Clear Advantage Auto Glass Technician Competition (AGTO) and the GlasWeld Windshield Repair Competition in Honor of Walt Gorman (WRO). Registration for both competitions officially closes August 5 and competitors are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Be sure to register soon if you are interested in competing, as there is absolutely no on-site registration to compete. Space is limited.
The AGTO and WRO offer competitors from all over the world and various walks of life the opportunity to face-off for the title of “World’s Best Auto Glass Technician” and “World’s Best Windshield Repair Technician.” Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three finalists in each division, totaling $18,000.
