TORONTO, ON – The search is on for Today’s Trucking’s 2018 Highway Star of the Year – the honor reserved for Canada’s top driver or owner-operator.

The search is on for Canada’s top truck driver or owner-operator.

Nominations are now open for the award, which will be presented during the Truck World trade show that runs April 19-21 in Toronto. And there’s more than bragging rights at stake. The winner will receive:

  • $10,000 in cash
  • A road-ready, trucker friendly laptop from OBAC
  • Special-edition leather jacket with the winner’s name and HIghway Star of the Year logo
  • Travel and accommodations for two to Toronto for Truck World 2018.

We’re looking for one driver who embodies the term “professional”. A driver with that certain outlook on life and the industry that sets them apart from the rest. A driver who gives to the community, operates with the highest regard for other road users, and who generally sits tall in the saddle. In short, we’re looking for someone with Star qualities.
