The cutoff for entering the 2003 Company Equipment Driver of the Year contest, co-sponsored by Truckers News and the Truckload Carriers Association, is fast approaching. Pre-applications must be submitted by Oct. 17.
The contest is open to all drivers who are employed by an over-the-road carrier and have logged 1 million accident-free miles. The driver must be nominated by the carrier and must be employed by that carrier for at least the past three years. Previous grand prize winners are not eligible. Those who finished second and third in past contests may not enter for two years after the year of their award.
Truckers News’ sister publication Overdrive is a sponsor of TCA’s Independent Contractor of the Year contest. Grand prize winners of both contests will be announced at TCA’s annual convention in Waikoloa, Hawaii, March 14-27, 2004. The top five drivers of the year in each category will receive cash, equipment and gift certificates among other prizes.
