The 2022 International Foodservice Distributor Association’s (IFDA) Truck Driving Championship is not only a showcase of skills necessary to be a safe and successful truck driver, but also a chance for family members and young children to show their appreciation for truckers. During the Truck Driving Championship, held in Orlando, Florida on Oct. 13-15, high school and elementary school students take part in their own categories.
For the drivers’ children, Fleet Advantage sponsored and co-organized the event’s annual Kids Essay Contest. This essay contest gives children of truck drivers three essay questions to share why they are proud of their truck-driving parents, including what animated character reminds them of their parents and why.
Roman Skorupa, 17, son of Daryl Skorupa from Gordon Food Service, won first place in the 11 to 17-years age range.
“On behalf of IFDA, we thank Fleet Advantage for its continued support of the Kids Contest for the Truck Driving Championship. We truly appreciate and value the company’s tremendous support of our organization and the industry we represent.”Lisa Broyhill, vice president of industry relations at the IFDA
