You can enter a driver or yourself into this year”s Real Life Trucking Hero contest via Progressive’s website for the contest.

Truckers are the “unsung heroes of the transportation industry,” notes a Progressive Commercial release about the latest installment in its Real Life Trucking Hero contest. “They work long hours, are away from their families, and often don’t get the credit they deserve for a job well done.”

To recognize truckers, Progressive brings back its third annual contest. Having launched at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, anyone can now nominate a trucker, through September 30. Nominating and voting is easy: simply submit a photo and a short essay (up to 500 words) explaining why you (or someone else) should be named the winner.
