CCJ’s sister publication Truckers News is looking for a family with deep roots in trucking. The 2008 Great American Trucking Family contest rewards one family each year whose family tree has produced a bumper crop of truckers, past and present. If your family history is full of men and women who drive, or drove, big rigs for a living, you could be the winning family.
Members of the winning family will have their family portrait photograph on the cover of the August Truckers News. Family members will be flown to Dallas for the Aug. 21-23 Great American Trucking Show, where they’ll have a night to remember at one of the city’s most famous restaurants, be VIPs at show events and receive the award onstage at a country music concert.
Industry honors and community involvement will be among the judging criteria. Entries must be postmarked by May 1 or e-mailed by that date to Executive Editor John Latta at email@example.com.
