Announcement for All drivers who want their voices heard about the topics concerning them within the trucking Industry.
We want to invite you to be a part of a unique Video Advocacy campaign using Social Media and Video to share the truth about driver experiences within the trucking industry.
It is our goal to share the facts and reality through video regarding many of the vital issues that face the industry, specifically the issues which affect the professional driver
The media does not always accurately share much of the circumstances which include truck drivers. Many times this is because they are unaware of the truth involving a lot of the reality that face professional drivers, and only hear what “Big Industry” and or lobbyists tell them. This holds true for those in Congress also, who many times are surprised when they hear the “different side of the story.” It’s up to us to educate everyone.
Let’s make them aware.
Trucking Social Media (TSM) is running a Truck Driver Video Advocacy Campaign, inviting all truckers to submit their video on the TSM. Videos will be categorized in the Video Contest Category and will be shared through Social Media. Prizes will be given to winners, and videos are judged by piers. The videos with the most “thumbs up” will be awarded cash prizes. Most importantly, the messages in these videos will be shared via Social Media.
Comments made on submitted videos (on contestant video page) will also be taken into consideration.
We ask that when you rate or comment on a video, you take into consideration:
a) The topic and content
b) How well the message came across and was articulated
