About the Awards

The Ratchet+Wrench All-Star Awards were created to recognize auto care professionals who are talented, inspirational, and dedicated to improving the industry and helping others. Anyone can nominate; it’s fast, free and allows you to thank a deserving individual on a grand stage. Winners receive:

  • A high-quality Ratchet+Wrench All-Star Award presented in front of hundreds of industry professionals at the Ratchet+Wrench Management Conference.
  • An article profiling their achievements in the September issue of Ratchet+Wrench and on
  • One free pass to the Ratchet+Wrench Management Conference, for use by qualifying industry professionals.
  • Press materials about the accomplishment for distribution to local media.

All nominators will receive a promo code for discounted Ratchet+Wrench Management Conference registration. And all nominees have a shot at being featured in the magazine outside of the awards issue.

The Rules and Process

The competition is open to all segments of the auto care industry. Nominators do not have to be employed within the industry and can nominate as many deserving auto care professionals as they choose, limit one nomination per candidate. Nominating is fast and easy—just complete the online entry form and submit.

After nominations close, the Ratchet+Wrench editorial team will carefully review all submissions, narrowing the field to a handful of finalists. Ratchet+Wrench staff will contact finalists for more detailed information before making final decisions.

Winners and their nominators will be notified in June and interviewed for a September profile article. A professional photo shoot will also be arranged.
