ARLINGTON, Va. — North American Technician Excellence (NATE) has selected the second winner in the Showcase Your NATE Sweepstakes, which rewards contractors for promoting their NATE-certified technicians. Parrish Services submitted the winning entry, earning the company $1,000 in local advertising and/or NATE promotional materials. Headquartered in Manassas, Va., Parrish Services’ reach extends from Virginia to Maryland and West Virginia.

To demonstrate the various ways they showcase their NATE-certified technicians, Parrish Services submitted examples of their marketing collateral, company website, and technician lanyards that prominently feature NATE. Parrish Services’ entry was randomly selected from the numerous submissions received from contractors throughout the country, including advertisements, brochures, vehicle signage, videos, business cards, and other examples of how each company highlights their NATE-certified technicians.

“We’re so excited to be named the latest winner in the Showcase Your NATE Sweepstakes,” stated Linda Couch, chief operating officer and vice president of sales for Parrish Services. “We take great pride in our technicians’ commitment to maintaining NATE certification, and we understand the value of letting potential customers know about our team’s proven skills and knowledge by showcasing our NATE.”

Two additional winners will be selected throughout the remainder of the year. To enter, contractors are invited to submit descriptions and pictures of the various ways that they use NATE to build consumer confidence and attract new customers. With each submission, the contractor is entered into a regular drawing for a chance to win the $1,000 prize, which can be used towards local advertising and/or NATE promotional materials. Many entries will also be featured online, offering the contractor additional exposure and recognition for their commitment to quality work.

The Showcase Your NATE entries can be submitted via email to or by mailing them to Showcase Your NATE Sweepstakes, 2111 Wilson Blvd., #510, Arlington, VA 22201. Many entries will be featured on NATE’s Facebook page ( and in other communication materials.
