ToolGuyd is excited to announce a new contest – the Most Valuable Tool of the Week (MVT) contest. Every week for the next four weeks, we will be featuring one or more tools that have been nominated as MVTs. We will start off the contest with an entry of our own, and will post about the first reader-submitted MVT starting next week.
An MVT is any tool that helped you get through the week or even a particularly rough day.
To enter the contest, simply describe to us one or more tools that you feel deserves the title of Most Valuable Tool. From amongst the pool of submissions, four finalists will be selected, one per week, and their MVT entries will be featured on ToolGuyd. At the end of the contest, two winners will be selected from these four finalists.
The grand prize is a set of Gearwrench Roto Ratchets, and the second prize is a $20 Amazon.com gift certificate. This is a ToolGuyd-funded contest; the Roto Ratchets were purchased at retail price from Amazon, and the gift certificate will be purchased at the time it is to be issued.
All entries must be submitted via the ToolsandGarages forum. Once you are a registered member, you can submit your entry in the designated contest thread.
To make submissions easier to track, you are encouraged to create a separate thread to discuss your MVT tool and the experience(s) that led you to nominate it as MVT. You should then post a link to your thread into the contest thread.
You can submit as many MVT tool nominations as you wish, but all entries beyond the first require an accompanying photo.
The contest is only open to those with US or Canadian addresses.
You can post images via our Flickr Group or any free image host, or upload them to the TaG forum.
