Van Wert, Ohio – The 2014 My Kennedy® program launched a $10,000 Kennedy® product garage make makeover. Now the long wait is over our Make Mine A Kennedy® Garage Winners have been selected! We are pleased to announce judging is complete and all winners have been notified. More than 100 entries were considered in 2014 and only 2 remained. The winning garages will be published later this year after the make-overs have been completed.

The winners were notified and awarded in person by Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Craig Martin. “Kennedy® strongly values the customer and the impact our product has on their life. It is an honor to give back and be an integral part of these American stories of hard-work and dedication. This is what our company is truly about” says Martin.

We congratulate our winners Steve Nielsen and Ethan Norton.

Steve’s story is one that embodies the Kennedy® tradition. The brown metallic toolbox he saw his Dad use regularly as boy is etched in his memory. It represents his father’s hard work, it represents success and it represents the American story. Steve is one of our winners because he knows Kennedy is trusted by generations before you and built to serve generations after you.

Ethan’s fiance wanted to reward him for all the hard work he’d put into his family, his dream and most of all his survival. He was in an accident that left him fighting for life. Ethan has endured a tough recovery. He found strength in his work, family, and friends. We are proud to name him as a winner because his determination and drive are in fact – Kennedy® Strong.

Thank you to all who participated. We appreciate your dedication to support Kennedy® and our mission to build American tool and storage cabinets that can be customized to suit your needs today and tomorrow.

Stay in-touch for more information about the My Kennedy® program for 2015 and to see the completed garages.
