Nominations Open for Female Truckers' Contest in US: Overdrive's Most Beautiful

Published On Jan 13, 2016By Prashant Talreja

Entries are now open for ‘Overdrive's Most Beautiful’, a contest staged between female truckers in the United States. This is the fourth edition of the competition, which aims to recognize “the accomplishments and inner and outer beauty of female drivers.” Last year's contest witnessed more than 80 nominees that included women from various fields such as company drivers, regional haulers, over-the-road truckers and many others.

Joanne Fatta from Lancaster, Pennsylvania walked away with the winning prize the last year. Currently, Joanne works as a driver/driver trainer at Sunrise Transport. Joanne claims that she was happy to have played a small part in breaking the stereotypical image people hold regarding truck drivers.

The contest winner of 2014, Emily Ann Weymouth from Charlton, Massachusetts, claims that she doesn't mind getting dirty operating a truck's interiors. “I do it as well as or better than the boys,” she boasts. She welcomes the challenge of being a hard-working woman in a man's world. Talking about people’s reaction when she climbs out of the truck covered in grease and with a dazzling smile on her face, Weymouth states, “Usually, jaws drop, and people just stare.”

At the first edition of the contest in 2013, Maggie Stone an independent owner-operator had clinched the award. Stone says proudly, “A person’s soul is what dictates beauty, and what they do for other people. It’s an honor to be chosen to represent so many beautiful women in such a great industry.”
