Do you have what it takes to become Truck Driver Of The Year? One lucky company driver will have the opportunity to win $25,000 if they’re chosen as truck driver of the year in a search by the Truckload Carriers Association, and Truckers News.
Here at Truckers Logic, we love supporting our fellow truck drivers. This is a great opportunity for you to be recognized. Perhaps you’re a reader that knows a truck driver that deserves such a reward, you can use the links in this article to nominate them.
The Company Driver of the Year contest honors company drivers who are reliable and safe. The contest is open to any company driver employed by an over-the-road carrier who has safely driven one million consecutive, accident-free miles. A company driver must be nominated by the motor carrier by which he/she is currently employed and must have been employed by and driving for his/her current trucking company employer for the past three years.
TCA and Truckers News’ sister publication Overdrive is searching for the Owner-Operator of the Year. This contest recognizes owner-operators who operate safely and promote the trucking industry, as well as run their businesses successfully.
The finalists in each contest will receive a trip to TCA’s annual meeting March 10-12 at the Wynn in Las Vegas, where the winners will be announced. Each of the finalists will receive $2,500.
Contest rules and nomination forms can be found here.
