Women In Trucking has announced the winners of the association’s "I Heart Trucking" photo contest which ran from June 23-24.

The contest was an effort to promote a positive view of the trucking industry and received three-dozen entries from industry professionals in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Drivers and other trucking industry contestants were tasked with using their own cameras or phones to submit photos.

The photos were judged based on originality, composition, quality and the “I Heart Trucking” theme. The contest was sponsored by Schneider and Waste Management, which also assisted in judging the entries.

“These photos truly express a positive and honorable perspective of the trucking industry,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO. “It is a great way to show the non-trucking public a side of transportation they might not normally see.”

Winners received a plaque at the Women In Trucking reception, at the Great American Trucking Show, which was sponsored by Werner Enterprises and Rand McNally.
