The photos were judged based on originality, composition, quality and the “I Heart Trucking” theme. The contest was sponsored by Schneider and Waste Management, which also assisted in judging the entries.
“These photos truly express a positive and honorable perspective of the trucking industry,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO. “It is a great way to show the non-trucking public a side of transportation they might not normally see.”
Winners received a plaque at the Women In Trucking reception, at the Great American Trucking Show, which was sponsored by Werner Enterprises and Rand McNally.
