The contest had been running since February, with Conicelli management spotting over 100 drivers with "I Spy Mr. Nice Guy" magnets displayed on their vehicles, which entitled them to a $20 gift pack and the opportunity to participate in the contest with a grand prize of a week in a Sea Isle City oceanfront condo.

After kicking off the festivities with refreshments, snacks and games, all of the contestants were registered to play in the drawing. In all, there were more than 40 contestants on hand, and the first segment of the contest was held, where a surprise contest for Best Dressed Contestant was held. Betty Strain and Donna Garretson each won in a tie, and each received a $75 gift card.

Then the main event was held, the drawing for the Beach House. The Grand Prize of a week in the beach house was won by Kathleen Gallagher, from Philadelphia Second Prize, a $350 gift card, was won by Joseph Bontempo, a Norristown resident, and the Third Prize of a $150 gift card, was won by Betty Strain of Philadelphia.

Thank you, everyone, for participating. Keep that "I Spy Mr. Nice Guy" magnet on your car, because it won't be very long before the next big contest begins! In the meantime, Conicelli management will be giving away $20 gift packs to lucky drivers who are spotted with a magnet on their car.

Conicelli-sponsored Colonial Technology Student Association Wins Awards at State Conference

Members of the award-winning Technology Student Association, comprised of students from Colonial Middle School and Plymouth Whitemarsh High School and sponsored by the Conicelli family and Conicelli Autoplex, are shown at the Pennsylvania State TSA Conference in April, when the awards were presented.
The Colonial Technology Student Association (TSA), a group of students from Colonial Middle School and Plymouth Whitemarsh High School who focus on science and technology topics, produced projects that were submitted at the Pennsylvania TSA State Conference held April 18-21 at Seven Springs Conference Center, and won some impressive awards.

The students swept the top three places in the Biotechnology Design competition, and also were awarded first place honors for Engineering Design.
The Conicelli family and Conicelli Autoplex are pleased to have been among those in the community to help these scholars achieve their goals.

"We would not have been successful at the Pennsylvania TSA State Conference without the generous support you have provided us throughout," said Joseph Narke, Chapter Advisor of the Colonial TSA. "We deeply appreciate the willingness with which you have and continue to sponsor our efforts."

The group will now proceed to the TSA National Conference in Orlando, Fla. in late June, where they will again compete. More information about the TSA program can be found at the state and national websites.
