Malco Products, SBC, has opened submissions for its annual Head of the Class Student Recognition Program for trade education students.
Through the no-cost, year-round Head of the Class Student Recognition Program, educators can nominate an outstanding graduating student in the HVAC/sheet metal, building construction and autobody repair fields to receive their choice of a significant Malco tool gift with an average value of $150. The entire graduating class also receives Malco caps. Since 2005, the Head of the Class program has reached more than 55,000 students, including 3,000 “Head of the Class” honorees, representing more than 700 high school career technical education programs, technical schools, union Joint Apprenticeship Training Committees and industry association programs across the U.S. and Canada.
“We love recognizing the hard-working students pursuing a trade career,” said Malco president and CEO Mardon Quandt. “In 2018, we received a record number of nominations for Head of the Class, and hope to engage even more students and educators this year.”
As a strong supporter and advocate of careers in the trades, Malco donates significant quantities of in-kind products and apparel annually to a variety of skilled trade education programs, competitions and events across the country, including high school, post-secondary technical and apprenticeship programs, regional apprenticeship contests and SkillsUSA state and national conferences. Total donated products and apparel through the 2018 Head of the Class program alone amounted to nearly $100,000.
Educators looking to nominate an outstanding student for the Head of the Class program can nominate on a rolling basis throughout the year at www.malcoproducts.com/educators-resources.
