Honoring the Industry's Safest Professional Drivers

Join Us on March 24 to Celebrate the Best and Brightest in Our Industry!

This year's Awards Celebration, presented by Great West Casualty Company, will recognize the OTA Driver of the Year and OAM Award Winners.

The OTA Driver of the Year Award recognizes drivers that possess an excellent driving record, dedication to the profession, and a passion for improving the roads through a safety-first mentality. Out of all the nominations received, 12 will be chosen as finalists. Each finalist and their company will receive a plaque recognizing their outstanding driving career. After careful deliberation by our judging panel, the winning driver will be announced live during the awards banquet at the Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center.
