Do you work with a carwasher who goes above and beyond their job description? If so, he or she could be our 2013 Most Valuable Carwasher (MVC).

Since becoming editor, and having the important task of choosing a recipient, I will let you in on a few secrets as to why the past people were chosen. First of all, I noticed I leaned towards choosing people who went the extra mile. Sure, people are qualified to do their jbos well, but to be the MVC, you really have to do more than what's expected. Does he or she come in early? Stay late? Does he or she help others? What about offering their skills to a charity? Does she or he compliment others?

Those are a few of the things that helped me in picking last year's recipient.

In order to nominate someone, e-mail me, Editor Debra Gorgs at Please put the word “nomination” in the subject line. Nominations will be accepted until June 7.

Please include the name of the nominee, his or her specific job responsibility, and the name and location of the business. Using no less than 500 words, please go into detail about why this person deserves the award. What do they do that’s beyond their job description? What characteristics make them worthy of this award?

The winner will be announced and featured in the July 2013 issue of Professional Carwashing & Detailing magazine, as well as on our website. He or she will also be awarded at the Western Carwash Association Convention & Tradeshow being held September 11, 2013, in San Diego.

Good luck!
