$5K prize on offer for Young Driver Award

Applications are now open for the Livestock and Bulk Carriers Association’s (LBCA) Young Driver Award.

The inaugural award, recognising an outstanding young driver who demonstrates a best-practice approach to driving and safety, will be presented at LBCA’s annual conference in Jindabyne, NSW on 6-7 March 2015.

Along with the title, the winner will walk away with a $5,000 trip to the USA.

LBCA, the body representing the livestock and bulk transport sectors has launched the award to recognise young emerging stars and encourage them to build a career in the trucking industry.

LBCA’s General Manager, Bianca Brownlow, is passionate about attracting and retaining young people in an industry which has an ageing population.

“Our Committee feels very strongly about recognising the young people in our industry and finding ways to improve retention rates for the longevity of the industry,” says Brownlow.

The Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC) applauds LBCA for the initiative which is designed to recognise talent and encourage young people to build a career in trucking.

“Transport and logistics is an enabler for every other industry, particularly agriculture. Moving livestock safely, efficiently and in a timely manner is hugely important to the global supply chain,” says TLISC CEO, Robert Adams.

Entries are open for drivers aged 21 – 35 (as at 31 December 2014) and must be submitted by Friday 9 January 2015. To download an entry form, click here or email office@lbca.org.au. Applicants will be shortlisted with three finalists identified. The winner will be announced at the LBCA Conference.

Applicants must be either a current member of the LBCA or working for a current member of the LBCA. A membership form can be submitted with the application.
