Nominees need to be an employee of an independent tire dealership or tire company who offers inspiration to others regarding how they have coped with a disability – defined as “a physical or mental condition that substantially limits one or more major life activities.”
Entries are due by July 30, submitted to the RTA.
Another ITEC activity is a Retread Tire Beauty Contest that rewards the best retreaded tire. “Employees will love the opportunity to show off their great workmanship,” according to the organizers of the competition.
