Nominations open for Young Driver of the Year Award
Wagga Wagga local Raymond 'Reggie' Sutton won the inaugural LBCA Young Driver of the Year Award.

 

The Livestock and Bulk Carriers Association (LBCA) will again recognise emerging truck drivers, with the announcement the Young Driver of the Year Award is returning in 2016.

The LBCA introduced the award this year at its annual conference to reward someone under the age of 35 who demonstrates a best practice approach to driving and safety.

The group also hopes the award will encourage young people to join and remain in the livestock transport sector.

"Any bulk or livestock driver under 35 is invited to nominate for the award, although you must be an LBCA member, or be employed by an LBCA member," the group says.
 
"As well as being named the Young Driver of the Year, the major prize is once again a $5,000 trip to the USA."

Raymond ‘Reggie’ Sutton won the inaugural award, beating 10 other nominees in the process.

"This year, Reggie has acted as a spokesperson for the livestock and bulk transport industry, talking about the industry, challenges and the importance of safety," the LBCA says.

Those interested in nominating someone for the 2016 award can email the LBCA to obtain a nomination form.
