2019 "I HEART Trucking" Photo Contest

The fifth annual “I HEART Trucking” photo contest was centered around the Women In Trucking (WIT) social media hashtag #SteeringTowardDiversity. With the driver shortage at an all-time high, the industry is being called to diversify the talent pool and reach across gender, ethnic, and age demographics. Therefore, #SteeringTowardDiversity is a message that trucking is for everyone and encourages companies to advance and celebrate diversity efforts within their workforce. 

Over 120 participants submitted their photos at the end of June, followed by online voting to determine the People's Choice Winners and a panel of judges determined their favorites for the Judges' Choice Winners.

The winners will be recognized at an "I HEART Trucking" reception at the WIT Accelerate! Conference Sept. 30-Oct. 2, 2019 in Dallas, Texas. They also will receive a plaque, and will be featured in the Women In Trucking Association's Redefining the Road magazine.
