Klein Tools will announce six regional winners on Oct. 14, 2019, based on three criteria: master of the craft, classroom/lab experience and community dedication.

“For six years running, we’ve been compiling stories from the best of the best American electricians, and now we’re turning our focus to the instructors who have inspired generations of excellence in the field. Electricians wouldn’t be there without the educators who taught them to think critically, solve problems, be safe and contribute to their communities,” says Greg Palese, vice president of marketing at Klein Tools. “In addition to a $1,000 cash prize, Klein’s 2019 Electrician of the Year – Head of the Class edition will award $1,000 of Klein Tools products to the grand prize winner’s classroom as a thank you for all of his or her hard work and dedication to bettering the future of the industry.”
