The American Trucking Associations will again sponsor a video contest for National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. ATA is seeking amateur video submissions from professional truck drivers, driver’s families, shippers, suppliers, allied companies or community members explaining why professional truck drivers are essential. Entries can be produced with simple cell phone or home video cameras – with the emphasis on creativity and message, rather than production values.
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2010 will take place Sept. 19-25. The deadline for contest submissions is Sept. 13. Submissions should be posted to YouTube, tagged with “ATATrucksBringIt” and the URL e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, entries can be sent to email@example.com or American Trucking Associations, ATA Image and Outreach, 950 N. Glebe Road, Suite 210, Arlington, VA 22203.
