WANTED: North America’s Safest and Most Professional Truck Drivers!
Company drivers and owner operators – do you have a superior safety record? Can you represent a positive image of the trucking industry? Do you make an effort to protect the environment and/or give back to your community? If so, the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) wants YOU to enter its 2008 Driver of the Year contests.
The overall goal of the Company Equipment and Owner Operator of the Year contests is to recognize and pay tribute to the drivers who provide reliable and safe truck transportation in moving North America's goods. Several finalists will be chosen for each contest, from which the top three winners – including the grand prizewinner – will be selected.
Preliminary applications for both contests are now being accepted until Sept. 12, 2008. Final applications are due Oct. 31, 2008. Winners will be announced at the Annual Banquet during TCA’s Annual Convention, March 8-11, 2009, at the Gaylord Palms Resort, Orlando, Florida.
To be considered for the company equipment contest, you must be nominated by the TCA-member motor carrier that you have driven for, and been employed by, for at least three years. You must have at least one million consecutive, accident-free miles, and you’ll be judged on your performance record, ability to operate in a safe manner on the public highways, efforts to enhance the public image of the trucking industry, and positive contributions to your community.
Drivers and/or driver teams who own their own truck(s) and have been contracted to a TCA-member trucking company for at least three years may enter the owner operator contest. The applicants can nominate themselves, or be nominated by a spouse or by the trucking company they are leased to. Like the company drivers, the owner operators must have at least one million consecutive, accident-free miles, and will also be judged on their ability to run a successful business, operate in a safe manner on the public highways, and efforts to enhance the public image of the trucking industry.
