AKRON (Nov. 21, 2005) — Goodyear said this year's search for a recipient for the North American Highway Hero program, which honors truckers who selflessly risk life and limb to aid their fellow motorists, will end Nov. 30.
Nominations for the 23rd annual award will be accepted through that date, and a winner will be announced later.
To be considered, applicants must be a full-time truck driver, a resident of the U.S. or Canada, on the job or to or from work and in the rig at the time of the incident. The driver's rig must have 14 wheels or more, and the incident must have taken place between Nov. 16, 2004 and Nov. 15, 2005 in the U.S. or Canada.
