2. Rookie of the Year -- For up-and-coming tech professionals with less than two years of experience.

3. Die Hard – For industry junkies who breathe, sleep and thrive in their career.

4. Barrier Buster – For showing heart and passion in overcoming obstacles to succeed.

5. Pay it Forward – For being a community advocate and inspiring the next generation of techs.

Nominations close Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019, at 5 p.m. EST.

Each category winner, as selected by a panel of judges, will receive a $1,000 Snap-on tool voucher. The grand prize winner also will receive a trip to Scottsdale, Ariz., to the 2020 TechForce Foundation Leadership Summit taking place Jan. 17–18, 2020, and receive passes to 2020 Scottsdale Auto Week events.
