Know Any Terrific Truckers? Share the Love!

TORONTO — Valentine’s Day is your last chance to nominate a 2013 Highway Star Of The Year.

Truth be told, the deadline is one day later — Friday, Feb. 15. But the very act of submitting a nomination — even if the driver doesn’t win — is a lovely and inexpensive way to show him or her how much you love their work.

We’re looking for some terrific individual out there; we’re talking about an experienced, safe, conscientious driver who is a credit to the name on the door as well as to the community at large.

The winner gets $15,000 in prizes (including 10 grand in folding money) and a free trip for two to Montreal to the Highway Star of the Year Awards Ceremony, coinciding with ExpoCam 2013.

Nominating your driver is cheap and easy, and of course you can nominate yourself if you prefer.

The competition is organized by Newcom Business Media (the company that owns this website and ExpoCam), and co-sponsored by Freightliner, Meritor, Espar, Cummins, Chevron, and the Owner-Operator’s Association of Canada (OBAC).

Past winners have come from across Canada and included company drivers as well as owner-operators.

The deadline is Friday, Feb. 15. A panel of judges will consider all the nominations and will be contacting qualifying candidates and nominators after that date.

Good luck!
