Want to show appreciation for a truck driver who has consistently maintained the highest standards of excellence in safety and compliance? Then nominate them for the 2021 International Driver Excellence Award (IDEA) from the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA). The prestigious annual award recognizes drivers who “go above and beyond the performance of their duties as a commercial vehicle driver, distinguishing themselves conspicuously and beyond the call of duty through the achievement of safe operation and compliance carried out with evident distinction for an extended period of time.”

After selection by the CVSA Board of Directors, the winner will receive their award at the 2021 CVSA Workshop in Louisville, Kentucky, on April 19. The award includes a crystal trophy, a $2,500 check, paid lodging and travel to Louisvile, and national recognition in a feature article in the CVSA’s “Guardian” magazine.
