ATA sponsors video contest

| July 29, 2010

The American Trucking Associations will sponsor a video contest for National Truck Driver Appreciation Week Sept. 19-25.

ATA is seeking amateur video submissions from professional truck drivers, driver’s families, shippers, suppliers, allied companies or community members explaining why professional truck drivers are essential. Entries can be produced with cell phone or home video cameras – with the emphasis on creativity and message, rather than production values.

The deadline for contest submissions is Sept. 13. Submissions should be posted to YouTube, tagged with “ATATrucksBringIt” and the URL e-mailed to ntdaw@trucking.org.

Alternatively, entries can be sent to ntdaw@trucking.org or American Trucking Associations, ATA Image and Outreach, 950 N. Glebe Road, Suite 210, Arlington, VA 22203.
