Why Do You Appreciate Truckers?  Tell Us For A Chance To Win $500.

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is coming to a close, but truckers are hard working men and women who deserve more than just 1 week. This year, we've partnered up with our friends over at The Healthy Trucker for a special contest featuring $500 worth of prizes that are PERFECT for every trucker... AND THERE'S STILL TIME TO ENTER!

What Are The Prizes?

How To Enter

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.

Example Tweet: "@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 their 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).

  • 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
