ATEQ And Jeff Buckley Collaborate To Give Tools To Schools During National Car Care Month

This year, ATEQ and Buckley want to know why students need a VT36 in their classrooms in order to properly service winter tires.

ATEQ TPMS Tools and Jeff Buckley, owner of My Father’s Shop, recently announced the collaboration to give away two ATEQ VT36 tools to high schools, technical centers or colleges. This is the second year ATEQ and My Father’s Shop have partnered to give away tools to schools. 

October is the second National Car Care Month, the first being April. October will focus on going into the winter months and why it is important to service winter tires. When tires are changed, a relearn must be performed on the tire, which can be completed using the VT36.  

This year, ATEQ and Buckley want to know why students need a VT36 in their classrooms in order to properly service winter tires. See the entry rules below. 

Giveaway Rules:

Note: The winners from the 2018 giveaway are not allowed to win this year’s giveaway, however, participation is encouraged. This contest is open to students in the United States and Canada only.

Week 1: From Monday, October 7 to Sunday, October 13, students may submit a video explaining to us why they need a VT36 TPMS tool. Each applicant must explain why their school is the most deserving of a tool. Please submit all entries to an online submission form, which will be available on ATEQ TPMS Tools and My Father’s Shop Facebook pages on October 7. Be as creative as you want! Limit one entry per school.

Week 2: Once the videos are collected and reviewed, they will be posted to ateq-tpms.com and Facebook so voting can begin. From Monday, October 14 to Monday, October 21, users can vote for the school that they think should win a VT36 tool. There will be a separate voting link. There will be two winners. 

The winners will be announced via Facebook Live on October 22.
