The Real Women in Trucking organization is in the midst of its second annual “Queen of the Road” awards and recognition program for women who make their living behind the wheel of heavy-duty trucks. The program is designed to recognize three distinguished female haulers who exemplify the RWIT’s “R.E.A.L.” criteria of “Reaching out, Encouraging others, Achieving personal success” and demonstrating Leadership.
After taking nomination from RWIT members and others around the industry, voting is open to members and those outside the organization via this link.
RWIT’s Desiree Wood says vote participants are encouraging to read every anonymous bio posted at the link to get a full sense of the spectrum of candidates, then vote “for as many Queen of the Road nominees as you see fit.” In the end, when voting closes at the end of April, the top 3 nominees will be recognized with these items, among others:
- $500.00 Visa gift card
- “Queen of the Road” recognition award
- RWIT membership for both nominee and the person who nominated
Formal recogition will take place in May during RWIT’s “Queen of the Road on the High Seas” cruise.
