Women In Trucking Association (WIT) is seeking nominations for the annual Women In Trucking Driver of the Year award sponsored by Walmart. The third annual award recognizes exceptional female professional drivers who lead the industry in safety standards while actively working to enhance the public image of the trucking industry.

“At Walmart, we believe we are best equipped to help our associates, customers, and the communities we serve live better when we really know them. That means understanding, respecting, and valuing diversity, experiences, ideas, and opinions while being inclusive of all people. That’s part of why we are pleased to sponsor the Women in Trucking’s Female Driver of the Year award again as a way to recognize and empower women who are making an impact across the industry,” said Ryan McDaniel, Vice President of Transportation and Women In Trucking board member. “I continue to be proud of the work Walmart and Women In Trucking are doing to advance women within transportation.”

The application is open to any female driver who has safely driven at least one million consecutive, accident-free miles. Nominees must demonstrate a positive contribution to the trucking industry and their community.

“Each year we become more amazed at both the quality and the quantity of drivers nominated for this prestigious award,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO.  “If you know of a female driver who deserves to be recognized, we ask that you submit her information so we can recognize her for her exceptional service to the industry.”

The finalists and overall winner will be recognized at the 2022 Salute to Women Behind the Wheel event at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Ky. on Friday, March 25.
