The Women In Trucking Association will be giving away a 2014 Volvo VNL670 at the “Salute to Women Behind the Wheel” next spring. The truck is being donated to WIT by Arrow Truck Sales, Inc., a Gold Partner supporter of the association.
To qualify, a driver must complete an application form to verify eligibility, and write a short essay on why it is important to attract more women into the trucking industry. Examples of ways the driver has encouraged women to consider a career in trucking will show her or his support for the mission of Women In Trucking Association.
Applications will be accepted until November 15, 2017. The contestant must be at least 23 years old and hold a valid commercial driver’s license and be a member in good standing of WIT before September 30, 2017.
WIT President and CEO Ellen Voie, will hand over the keys to the winner on March 24, 2018 during the 9th annual “Salute to Women Behind the Wheel,” at the Mid-America Trucking Show at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky.
“We are thrilled to be able to give a truck to one of our members at our annual “Salute to Women Behind the Wheel,” said Voie. “I am especially looking forward to handing over the keys to the Volvo to allow one deserving member the chance of a lifetime, thanks to Arrow Truck Sales and their very generous donation.”
Jim Stevenson, Arrow Director of National Accounts, also serves on the Women In Trucking Board of Directors. “Arrow has long been supportive of equality and diversity efforts within the trucking industry,” said Stevenson, “and we look at this as an opportunity to help a WIT member by providing a late model Volvo truck to support his or her success as an owner-operator.”
