The American Trucking Associations will sponsor a video contest for National Truck Driver Appreciation Week for a third year.
The contest aims to celebrate the 3.2 million professional truck drivers delivering life's essentials across the country everyday.

ATA is seeking amateur video submissions from professional truck drivers, driver's families, shippers, suppliers, allied companies or community members explaining why professional truck drivers are essential. Entries can be produced with simple cell phone, flip video or home video cameras, with the emphasis on creativity and message, rather than production value.

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2011 will take place September 11-17. The deadline for contest submissions is September 21, 2011, allowing entries to be produced during NTDAW festivities.

Submissions should be posted to YouTube, tagged with "ATATrucksBringIt" and the URL emailed to

Alternatively, entries can be sent to or:
