Truckload Carriers Association members can nominate drivers who exemplify the profession and demonstrate leadership on and off the road. Five drivers will win $20,000 each.

Truckload Carriers Association has opened nominations for its TCA Professional Drivers of the Year awards through Dec. 8, 2023.

The program was revamped last year with a name change and increased cash prizes. It celebrates five drivers with a prize of $20,000 per driver and recognition at TCA events and publications throughout the year, according to a TCA press release.

Nominees are expected to show a commitment to safety, demonstrate leadership on and off the road, and contribute meaningfully to the success of their companies or to the industry, according to TCA. Drivers must be nominated and employed by a TCA carrier member.

We also extend our heartfelt appreciation to Love's and Cummins for their support, which has been instrumental in making this program possible throughout the years."
