Progressive Insurance has kicked of its 3rd annual Real Life Trucking Hero contest. From now until Sept. 30, 2014, anyone can nominate a trucker for consideration.

To nominate a trucker or vote for one of the nominees, simply submit a photo and a short essay (up to 500 words) explaining why you (or someone else) should be named the winner. To make a nomination, vote for a Real Life Trucking Hero, or to learn more, visit http://www.progressivecommercial.com/truckinghero or http://www.facebook.com/progressivecommercial.

After the entry period has concluded, there will be a two-week voting period for the top four winners (entrants can submit one entry during the entry period and users can vote once per day, per entry). Progressive will then award cash prizes to the top three and a grand prize of $5,000 to the trucker who wins the title of “Real Life Trucking Hero.”
