Truck Driver Appreciation Week Contest from Driver Solutions
The Truck Driver Appreciation Contest celebrates all they do, recognizing big-rig personalities, their stories and successes. We're giving credit where credit is due.

Speeding by 18-wheelers, many people rarely pause to consider the value truckers bring to their lives. Truckers play a major role in keeping America moving, and yet they often go underappreciated for all they do. That's why Driver Solutions and eGears , two of the country's top leaders in truck driving education, are teaming up once again to hold a special contest, timed to coincide with Truck Driver Appreciation Week, September 11-17.

The Truck Driver Appreciation Contest ( profiles spectacular truckers everywhere, giving people an opportunity to share heartfelt gratitude for their favorite trucker in a public blog. It also qualifies them to win a grand prize, the Ultimate Truck Driver Convenience Package, which includes a $200 gift card from Wal-Mart for the purchase of truck tools, a mini-fridge, XMSatellite Radio, a Garmin GPS system, comfortable clothes or whatever else makes the trucker's life better.

"Truckers are special people, and they deserve reward and recognition," says Mark Kinsel, president of Driver Solutions, a company that's helped over 20,000 truckers obtain key hiring requirements and job support through its highly unique, company-paid CDL training model. "This contest highlights some of the industry's best truckers, including many of Driver Solutions' customers and those who've capitalized on eGears' progressive, online CDL instruction. Quite simply, we're creating a platform for trucker appreciation plus highlighting the humanity behind trucking careers. Many truckers are passionate about their job, but life on the road can be risky and a sacrifice, particularly in terms of time away from family and friends. The Truck Driver Appreciation Contest celebrates all they do, recognizing big-rig personalities, their stories and successes. We're giving credit where credit is due."

Entering the contest is easy. Truckers, as well as any family or friends, submit written statements about why they deserve to win. The more creativity the better, and testimonials, pictures, short essays and even poems are encouraged. After the submissions are reviewed, one winner will be drawn for the grand prize. Exceptional entries get posted on the 2011 contest blog, with Driver Solutions and eGears announcing the winner November 1 via Twitter, Facebook and the blog.

Driver Solutions and eGears held the first Truck Driver Appreciate Contest last year, with dozens of submissions and great enthusiasm for the online event. Example entries may be read at:
