According to the ATA, there are 3.5 million professional truck drivers in the USA, hauling tons of freight on our interstates each day to safely and speedily deliver the goods we need. To honor these men and women who keep our country running, Teletrac Navman is celebrating National Truck Driver Appreciation Week with a social media contest, #WhyIHaul.
We want to hear truckers’ stories about their lives on the road and give the world an opportunity to hear their voices – voices that are rarely heard.
Here’s how the #WhyIHaul contest works:
- From September 8 - 30, 2017, drivers can post memories, thoughts, funny stories, photos and videos of their careers on the road to Facebook and/or Twitter using the hashtag #WhyIHaul. If posting to Facebook, please be sure to make the post public. You can also submit a post via email to WhyIHaul@shiftcomm.com. Any submission received via email will be posted to Teletrac Navman’s Facebook page.
- Each week, the truckers with the three most-liked posts on either platform will each win $300 in gift cards to Amazon and Pilot Flying J’s or donated in their name to their favorite charity. These drivers’ stories will also be featured on the winner’s page of Teletrac Navman’s WhyIHaul website.
If you’re a driver, we want to hear from you! Share why you haul on Facebook or Twitter today and visit WhyIHaul for more details and contest rules. But remember: no posting while driving — your safety is important to us.
If you work with drivers in any capacity, we invite you to help us recognize and celebrate truckers by letting them know about this contest and encouraging them to share why they haul.
