Why Do YOU Appreciate Truckers? Here’s A Contest Update

Last week we kicked off a special contest (clink link for all the details) in partnership with our friends over at Driver Solutions to help recognize all the hard working men and women who keep our country moving.  It was National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, so we were able to launch with some great buzz.  We appeared on the Dave Nemo Show to chat about some of the details and awesome photos that we’ve received.  An article about the contest was also picked up by CDLLife.com which helped us kick things off with a bang…

But to us at The Healthy Trucker, showing appreciation for drivers extends well beyond just one week.  That’s right, we’re taking entries into our contest until September 30th to make sure everyone has plenty of time to recognize the special trucker in their life.  It’s really easy to do and there are some great prizes available to truckers. In fact, it’s as simple as taking 1 photo and letting us know why YOU appreciate drivers.  It could be the running shoes they bring you, the food your dog eats or your favorite drink.  We’ve had over 30 awesome photos and stories come in that you can check out on our Facebook page.   Let’s review all the details below..

AppreciateTrucker Running Shoes

Here’s how to enter:
Think about an item that has some significance in your life that you wouldn’t have without a trucker. It could be your car, a pair of running shoes, even a loaf of bread (everyone has to eat!) or anything else with some meaning to you. Now, take a photo of you with that item holding up a sign using the hashtag #AppreciateTruckers like this:

@healthy_trucker - I #AppreciateTruckers for bringing me this smartphone that I use every single day.

@healthy_trucker – I #AppreciateTruckers for bringing me this Samsung Galaxy S5, especially @awesometrucker.

Now that you have that photo, share it with us in one of two ways:

  • Like The Healthy Trucker on Facebook (if you don’t already)
  • Post the picture on our wall using the hashtag #AppreciateTruckers and tag the trucker you’re recognizing in the photo’s caption when you post (friends & family can tag their special trucker & truckers can tag other truckers).

    OR

  • Follow The Healthy Trucker on Twitter
  • Post your photo in a tweet mentioning @healthy_trucker using the hashtag #AppreciateTruckers and give a shout out to the trucker you’re recognizing in the tweet (friends & family can tag their special trucker & truckers can tag other truckers).

The Details:
We will be collecting all photos from September 12th – 30th as entries into this Truck Driver Appreciation contest. On October 1st, we will post all photos in an album on Facebook and share the link on Facebook and Twitter (again, be sure you’re following The Healthy Trucker on Facebook and @healthy_trucker on Twitter for the updates.)

Once all photos are posted and released, the voting period will be open from October 1st – October 14th. Each like, share and comment on the photos (NOT the album) on Facebook will count as 1 vote (all weighted the same).

The photo with the most votes at the end of the day on October 14th will be the overall winner and the photo with the 2nd most votes will be the runner up. We will announce the winners the morning of October 15th.

* This contest is limited to those living in the contiguous United States
