Cummins scholarships up for grabs

Entries for the 2017 Cummins South Pacific Scholarships are now open, the Australian Trucking Association (ATA) announced.

Under the scholarships, three people will have the opportunity to attend Trucking Australia 2017 in Darwin to share their suggestions on how to improve safety or business viability in the trucking industry.

The ATA said the competition is open to all Australian trucking operators and their employees.

“To enter, tell us in 100 words or fewer what you think could be done to improve safety or business viability in the trucking industry, and what you would bring to the table at Trucking Australia 2017 and the theme of preparing for the future,” the ATA said.

The three best entries will receive a trip to Trucking Australia 2017 to share their ideas, including one full delegate registration; three nights’ standard accommodation at an appropriate hotel and one return economy air fare to Darwin from any Australian capital city.

“I urge everyone who has a great idea about how to improve the industry’s safety to apply for one of these scholarships and share these ideas with the world,” said Scott Alexander, Manager On-Highway Sales & Support, Cummins South Pacific.

Entries must be submitted via email to ataevents@truck.net.au by 5pm Canberra time on 31 May and will be judged by the experts at Cummins.

The winners will be announced in the ATA’s Friday Facts newsletter on 9 June, 2017.
