In memory of one of the strongest supporters of the screen print industry, the Academy is dedicating its Student Printing Competition to Tom Frecska, the late editor of ScreenPrinting Magazine. Tom, who passed away suddenly in 2009, recognized the importance of and supported the education of students in the screen printing process. The awards will be renamed the Tom Frecska Student Printing Awards.
