NORTHBROOK, Ill. — During the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. has experienced a significant economic downturn and faced challenges like never before. Amid the panic of a global crisis, one group of unsung heroes has continued with “business as usual” to keep grocery store shelves stocked, hospitals and health care facilities supplied with vital medications and personal protective equipment, and much more. Those unsung heroes are the professional truck drivers of North America.
BlueDEF, a major producer of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) is offering some of those heroes a chance to tell their story and win a year’s supply of DEF with its Small Business Stimulus contest. The goal of the contest is to help small, family-owned business fleets across the country that have been negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and to take one more worry off their shoulders as they continue to keep America moving.

- Freight Type: Any type of delivery service that meets the above criteria qualifies for entry.
Judges will select the 10 grand-prize winners based on the following criteria:

- Quality of the entry.
A total of 10 grand prizes will be awarded to 10 winners after the conclusion of the contest period. Each grand-prize winner will receive 200 gallons of BlueDEF (80 containers, each containing 2.5 gallons), valued at approximately $1,200.
