ATA Announces Driver Appreciation Video Contest

American Trucking Associations will sponsor for the third year a video contest for National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Sept. 11-17.

ATA is seeking amateur videos from drivers, their families and companies explaining why professional truck drivers are essential.

Entries can be produced with cell phone, flip video or home video cameras, with the emphasis on creativity and message rather than production values.

Participants should post their videos on, tag them with “ATATrucksBringIt,” and email the URL to The deadline is Sept. 21.
