2018 IFDA TRUCK DRIVING CHAMPIONSHIP KIDS CONTEST

YOU LOVE YOUR TRUCK DRIVER AND WE WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT!
Children of truck drivers live in a world where their parent is not simply a truck driver, they are out there keeping America going and growing on a daily basis. This essay contest helps children express how much their parent driver means to them.
 
In addition to the essay contest for children ages 8-17, there will be a “Count the Cones” contest for children 7 and under.
 
Entry forms will be provided at check in to the Truck Driving Championship in the registration area. Families who wish to enter the contest must bring a photo of the child with their driver parent.

Children will be given three questions to answer on-site in Orlando. This will give them the opportunity to tell us why they love their driver. Answers should be no more than a few sentences long. Submissions must be turned in by the end of the Spouse/Guest Orientation Friday, September 21.
