What is a Truck Fair?
Truck Fairs highlight careers that use trucks or other transportation vehicles as part of their day-to-day workplace activities. The fair will allow students to see work vehicles up close and to speak with those who use/work on them. Students will gain an appreciation for careers in the many industries that depend on travel or transportation to function within the marketplace. Students will view the vehicle and talk with the business/organization representative about their career and the importance that the vehicle has in their daily work.
