The AMBA Tooling Trailblazer of the Year Award was established in 2017 to recognize AMBA member company accomplishments that have resulted in a notable impact in the area of education. The recipient of this prestigious award will be an AMBA member company making significant strides in education and/or recruitment.

Each year, the AMBA Tooling Trailblazer of the Year Award winners are announced during the AMBA Conference, promoted in national industry publications (including AMBA's The American Mold Builder magazine) and posted on the AMBA website.

The award recipient receives a $5,000 scholarship grant, sponsored by Progressive Components, to be donated to the industry-related educational program of its choice.
