The AEMP Foundation Technician of the Year Award is presented each year to two technicians -- one from the Private Sector and one from the Public Sector-- who exemplify the professional heavy equipment technician. By recognizing the finest technicians in the industry, the Technician of the Year Award advances the vocation and positively impacts the career growth of those who win.

The competition is open to technicians throughout the heavy equipment industry. Winners will be honored at an award event AEMP Annual Meeting. For more information on the AEMP Annual Meeting, visit

Winners also receive an embroidered jacket, $500 scholarship, plaque and custom-built toolbox, donated by the award sponsor, John Deere.
