The Women In Trucking Association is seeking nominations for the annual Driver of the Year award sponsored by Walmart.

The third annual award recognizes exceptional female professional drivers who lead the industry in safety standards while also working to enhance the public image of the trucking industry. 

The application is open to any female driver who has safely driven at least one million consecutive, accident-free miles. Nominees must demonstrate a positive contribution to the trucking industry and their community. 

The finalists and overall winner will be recognized at the 2022 Salute to Women Behind the Wheel event at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Ky. on Friday, March 25. The winner will be chosen based on her safety record, positive community contributions, and impact on the public image of the trucking industry. She will receive a plaque, commemorative ring, and more.

“Each year we become more amazed at both the quality and the quantity of drivers nominated for this prestigious award,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO.  “If you know of a female driver who deserves to be recognized, we ask that you submit her information so we can recognize her for her exceptional service to the industry.”
