"There's no better place to select our U.S. Champion. We're pleased to bring all three finalists to Germany with us to make sure that our U.S. Champion can feel the support of his country during the competition."

The finalists have all expressed their feeling of honor in having been selected. "I consider it quite an honor to be recognized by NGA as one of the top three auto glass installers in the U.S.," says finalist Jeff Olive.
