ARLINGTON, Va. – North American Technician Excellence (NATE), selected the first winner in the Showcase Your NATE Sweepstakes, which rewards contractors for promoting their NATE-certified technicians. Bob Johnston, owner of BNB Mechanical in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., submitted the winning entry, earning his company $1,000 in local advertising and/or NATE promotional materials.

After the sweepstakes kicked off in March, Johnston submitted an example of a newspaper advertisement featuring the new NATE logo. Johnston’s entry was randomly selected from the numerous submissions received from contractors throughout the country, including brochures, vehicle signage, videos, business cards, links to company websites, and other examples of how each company highlights their NATE-certified technicians.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be named a winner in the Showcase Your NATE Sweepstakes,” stated Johnston. “It’s truly an honor to be a part of such a great organization, and we are committed to maintaining certification and promoting it to help grow our business.”

Three 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, including NATE’s Facebook page, offering the contractor additional exposure and recognition for their commitment to quality work.
