Auto Glass Technician Olympics Increases First Prize to $10,000

First prize in the Auto Glass Technician Olympics will increase to $10,000, the largest purse ever in the auto glass replacement industry, this year. The best auto glass technician will take home a cash prize twice as large as last year.

This year's AGTO will be returning to Las Vegas, November 7-8, 2008, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. The event is co-sponsored by the Independent Glass Association and AGRR magazine.

"To have the opportunity to provide such a sizeable first place prize is both thrilling and humbling," stated Holly Biller, event director. "Without the support of our platinum sponsor Pilkington—and all our sponsors—this year it would not have been possible and the industry should be incredibly grateful," said Biller.

The Auto Glass Technician Olympics was created to provide an educational venue for technicians. The goals of the event are to increase the level of professionalism in the industry, to upgrade the skills of those competing as well as viewing and to help publicize the AGRSS Standard.
