They're giving away a free scholarship to their truck driving school for the third year in a row. The course is five weeks. It includes, testing, physicals and training, a total value worth about $3,500. Spirit CDL will also provide the winner with a job.
"Graduate on a Thursday or Friday. On Monday, they're starting a new job," Ken Bons of Spirit CDL says. "Beginning a new career and start providing for their families right away."
There is a demand for truck drivers right now. Many of the current ones are retiring and the younger generation just isn't interested in trucking as a career. Bons says it wouldn't be hard for anyone looking to start a career or switch.
"These companies are jumping at the bit for people who've got over a year experience with no tickets or no accidents because they're dying for drivers," Bons says. "If you like freedom and like to see the country it's a great job."
