The 2014 Petri IT Hero Contest
At The Petri IT Knowledgebase we’ve been delivering trusted IT advice for over 15 years and know of friends, co-workers, and mentors that have played a big role in helping us get to where we are today. It’s the same for our readers, as everyone knows someone that has provided assistance to solve a tech problem or given invaluable advice and mentoring to help advance their careers in IT.
That’s why the Petri IT Knowledgebase would like to recognize those individuals that have had a positive impact on your IT career by celebrating them as Petri IT Heroes.
Nominate your favorite IT hero by clicking on the “Enter Now” button, then write a short essay (no more than 250 words) that explains why you’ve nominated that person and why you think they’re worthy of the award. You’ll also need to enter your contact information and some basic details of the person you’re nominating.
Once the nomination period ends (on Tuesday, November 4th, 9:00am MT) the Petri editorial team will judge the entries and select 10 finalists. We’ll then ask readers to vote to select the winner from among those 10 finalists, which will be announced on Tuesday, November 18th, at 9:00am MT.
Here’s the best part: The winner and the person that nominated them will both be awarded an Xbox One video game console ($400 value), while the 9 other finalists (and the people that nominated them) will also get a $50 Amazon gift card.

As an added “Thank You” for Petri readers that nominate their IT heroes, we’ll be running a Petri IT Hero Twitter Weekly Giveaway from October 7th through November 4th. During that period we’ll be randomly giving away one $50 Amazon gift card every business day to a reader that submits a nomination and then Tweets that they did so using the #PetriIThero hashtag.
