Help WD-40 to Recognize Everyday American Heroes

Water is leaking from the ceiling, a storm knocks down a tree onto your roof or your child “accidentally” throws a ball and breaks your window.  These are all real-life scenarios when skilled tradespeople step in and fix our repair problems.

Tradespeople include construction workers, contractors, electricians, heating and cooling specialists, plumbers, painters and roofers, and WD-40 has partnered with Rebuilding Together to recognize all the hard work these people do day in and day out to make our lives easier.  These people truly are everyday American heroes.

WD-40 and Rebuilding Together, an organization dedicated to renovating low-income homes, and revitalizing neighborhoods and community facilities across America, are conducting a national search for the 2011 Tradesperson of the Year™ – someone who gives back to the community, adds value to his or her skilled trade industry, and reflects the values of Rebuilding Together and the WD-40 Brand.

Nominations are currently being accepted at www.RTTradespersonoftheYear.com through Jan. 20, 2012.  Six finalists will be chosen from specific skilled trade categories, including: carpenter, contractor, electrician, HVAC/plumber, painter and roofer.  One grand-prize winner will receive a Super Bowl getaway for two to the 2013 Super Bowl in New Orleans, including air travel, lodging, game tickets and $500 in cash.  Each finalist will also be a guest on a live national radio broadcast of “On the House with the Carey Brothers.”
