Each of the winning schools applied for a grant from the Ultimate Collision Education Makeover program, and each will receive $5,000 to purchase tools and equipment from the NATEF tool list. The winners were named Nov. 1st at the Education Foundation’s industry reception held at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nev.

GEICO is proud to support these schools.”
