Truck accessories manufacturer Belmor is now accepting submissions for its third annual “I Did My Duty…Now I Drive Heavy Duty” contest for military veteran truck drivers.

The contest offers an expenses-paid trip to the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky, which will be held March 28-30 to the winner and a guest.

Truckers can enter the contest by sharing their story about their military service and their career in the trucking industry. Submissions must include information about time in service, duties in the military, factors that led to a transition into the trucking industry, favorite aspects of truck driving and the significance of attending MATS. The winner will be selected by a panel of judges led by Mitch Fogle, president and CEO of Belmor parent company Lund International.

This year’s contest was won by U.S. Army veteran Larry Berman, of Spring Hill, Florida.

Submissions can be made online here by Jan. 15.
