Students who are studying or are planning to study a technology or business derived major, or a related field or trade, are invited to take part in our $1,000 scholarship essay competition.

A solid transportation industry is the backbone of a healthy economy. Without timely, reliable drivers, the economy can slowly grind to a halt, and expenses and living costs can become unaffordable.

This problem has forced the industry to begin reevaluating its practices, hoping to attract a new pool of young, qualified drivers.

The topic for this year's scholarship essay or 500-1,000 words is, "What can the transportation industry do to attract a new generation of drivers?"
