AACC’s Transportation, Logistics and Supply Chain Management Program will host the:
2nd Annual AACC Truck Pull
Thursday, April 4, 2013
11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
AACC Campus in Arnold, MD – Parking Lot C
Join the fun and learn about the Transportation, Logistics, and Supply Chain Management Industries.
The event will have two main focuses: the truck pull event and an education, career, and company showcase. The truck pulling activity will allow teams of five students to compete in a timed event by pulling an empty delivery box truck with a rope over a short, marked course on campus. The showcase event will allow local transportation, logistics, and supply chain companies can set up booths, tables, and displays providing industry information, career opportunities, or job listings. Students and community members will be able to interact with the companies with activities and ask questions about the industry.
Teams of five will compete in a timed event to pull an empty delivery truck over a closed course. Teams can compete in the following categories:
- 1st Place Award for the fastest time – $100 tuition voucher towards a Transportation Course
- 2nd Place Award for the fastest time – Book voucher towards a Transportation Course
- College Club and Organization Category
- Community Category
New this year! Participants will use their “Passport” issued to them at the event to visit booths representing the different industries. Complete the challenge at each booth, receive a stamp on your passport, and turn your passport in for a prize!
