Truckers know they have one of the toughest, least appreciated jobs in the economy. Each year the American Trucking Associations takes a step to remedy that problem by sponsoring National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.
This year Overdrive joins that effort by highlighting readers’ nominations of truckers they appreciate through this year’s week, Sept. 15-21.
Nominations are open through Sept. 12. By visiting Overdrive’s ILuvMyTrucker.com, you can make a written nomination by describing the trucker you appreciate. Submitters also are welcome to upload a photo or submit a 30-second video that begins “I love my trucker because …” Examples can be viewed on the site.
During the appreciation week, a winning nomination will be named and highlighted. That driver will be featured in the October Overdrive. Truckers judged to be among the top 10 submissions will receive a free “I luv my trucker!” T-shirt
