Following the success of last year’s Cintas & Carhartt Cold Crew Contest, Cintas Corporation has launched a second annual campaign to recognize individuals in the U.S. and Canada who withstand the toughest winter working conditions. Contestants are encouraged to share their stories and explain why Carhartt workwear is essential to their jobs for their chance to win free merchandise and a grand prize trip for two.
Entries will be accepted now through February 28, 2013, at which time Cintas and Carhartt will select finalists and begin public voting at the contest website. The grand prize winner will be announced in April, and he or she will enjoy a trip for two to the 2013 CMA Music Festival.
"Last year’s contest generated amazing stories from men and women who brave extremely brutal working conditions during the winter months, and we are looking forward to another opportunity to acknowledge them," says Brad Heizman, National Director of Garment Strategy for Cintas Corporation.
The Cintas & Carhartt Cold Crew Contest was first launched in December 2011. Hundreds of entries were collected, and the public selected Brooke Boyer, a wastewater treatment plant supervisor from Mt. Shasta, Calif., as the grand prize winner.
