Engine builders can nominate their own engine building businesses, or others can nominate them. The entry process is simple: The person making the nomination needs to write a short (300-word maximum) essay explaining why that person/operation should be considered and provide basic information about the engine builder being nominated.
All entrants in each of the three categories will be reviewed and a group of semi-finalists selected. The semi-finalists will then be asked to provide additional information for final judging.
From there a panel of judges and the Engine Builder staff will select finalists in each category. After further deliberation, the judges will name one of the finalists the Grand Prize Winner. The winner in each category will be announced 12/1/19.
