announces the
Pete Luter Innovation Awards
to honor innovation in the chimney service trade.

Entries are invited for recognition as the Best New Products for Professional Chimney Service Specialists

Products may include anything that a chimney professional
would sell to a client: chimney liner, caps, fireplaces, accessories, etc.,
as well as any product intended for use in doing the work
from brushes and ladders to software.

Requirements for entry are:
• The product must be on display at the National Chimney Sweep Guild trade show, March 16-17, 2017 at Louisville, Kentucky.
• The product must be available in the marketplace as of the date of the trade show, not a prototype or idea.
• The product must be new to the marketplace since the 2015 National Chimney Sweep Guild trade show in Lancaster, PA.
• Entries must be submitted by February 17.
• Entry fee of $200 per company for all items submitted.

Entries will be judged on their innovation, usefulness and other factors by an independent panel of experienced chimney professionals.

Awards will be presented at the NCSG convention. To enter, please contact Editor Jim Gillam, telephone: 541-882-5196, e-mail:
