CALLING MIDDLE SCHOOL ARTISTS FOR A NATIONAL COMPETITION!

Trucking community:

We are seeking young artists to help bring the story of trucking to life!

Trucking Moves America Forward (TMAF) is calling for young artists in middle school to join our competition to create a design for a trailer wrap that depicts the theme, “What does trucking bring you?”

The TMAF trailer wraps are larger-than-life advertisements that wrap around 18 wheelers and travel America’s highways delivering our everyday products and goods. Each wrap reaches up to 16 million people per market per year. That’s a lot of views and a great opportunity to educate motorists about the value of the trucking industry – and a great way to display the work of emerging young artists!

Some examples of designs may include images of important everyday items that trucks bring a child or his or her family and community.

Do you know a middle schooler that you would encourage to enter the contest? If you would like to enter a student, grades 6-8, please provide us with the following:

  1. The student’s name, city and school they attend
  2. A parent or adult contact
  3. Contact information: email and phone number
  4. Send to: Marketing@truckingmovesamerica.com

Once we have our group of student participants, we will officially announce the program. We are planning to gather student artist submissions throughout the months of July and August, with a winning announcement, and designed trailer wrap timed for October.

Thank you for your willingness to participate!

Regards,

The marketing team at Story Partners: Marketing@truckingmovesamerica.com
