The 3rd annual Cold Crew contest has gone country. Cintas and Carhartt have recently announced that the grand prize winner will go on a trip for two to the CMA Music Festival on June 5 – 8, 2014 in Nashville, TN.
Cintas and Carhartt launched the Cold Crew contest in 2011 to recognize individuals in the U.S. and Canada who withstand the toughest cold-weather working conditions. Contestants are encouraged to share how they “Outwork Them All” and explain why they rely on Carhartt, a brand designed for hard-working people, to help them get the job done.
Entries are being accepted at http://www.cintas.com/carharttcoldcrew through Feb. 28, 2014, at which time up to ten finalists will be selected. Online voting during the month of March will determine the grand prize winner.
“We know that our consumers are huge supporters of country music and we are excited to offer the CMA Music Festival trip as the Cold Crew grand prize once again,” says Rick Fecowicz, director of Carhartt Licensing. “It was extremely popular last year, and we’re honored to acknowledge hard-working North Americans in this way.”
Previous Cold Crew contests have spurred hundreds of entries from across the U.S. and Canada. Last year, arborist foreman James Tatem from Hookset, NH received the most votes and was awarded a trip to the 2013 CMA Music Festival. The 2012 winner was Brooke Boyer, a wastewater treatment plant supervisor from Mt. Shasta, CA who won a trip to the STIHL Timbersports Series.
“We look forward to hearing the amazing stories from men and women who brave extremely brutal working conditions every winter,” says Maureen Brennan, assistant marketing manager of Uniform Rental at Cintas Corporation, North America’s largest uniform supplier.
