Entries are sought for a contest meant to focus attention on exemplary drivers and trucking companies. 

To celebrate the efforts of professional drivers, Acuity is sponsoring its fifth annual National Truck Driver Appreciation Week Essay Contest. This year’s contest theme is “Heroes in Trucking – Tell us your story!” Entrants are encouraged to celebrate and share stories of how truck drivers and those involved in the trucking industry demonstrate their professionalism, character, or generosity.

Some examples may include:

  • Drivers or companies who perform community service or support charitable organizations
  • Drivers who are known for their safe driving record or commitment to the industry
  • Drivers or company owners who are particularly supportive of other drivers and their families
  • Other ways drivers or industry professionals have heart or have gone above and beyond

The contest is open to all truck drivers, trucking company owners, and trucking industry professionals, as well as anyone with a personal connection to a truck driver or a truck driver’s family.

There are over $8,000 in prizes. In addition, Acuity will donate to three trucking-related charities. Each contest entrant will be able to vote on which of these organizations they would like Acuity to support.

Entries must be submitted online between June 1 and July 20.
