“Are You Carhartt Tough?” Contest Finalist Announced
Cintas announces Denver Field Technician as Quarterly Winner in National Contest
Cincinnati, Oh. – Carhartt and Cintas have launched a search for North America’s toughest workers. The Are You Carhartt Tough? Contest is being conducted in conjunction with the roll-out of a new line of Carhartt Workwear offered for the first time in a Uniform Rental Program.
With Ducks Unlimited acting as media sponsor, contest organizers have reached out to the workforce in the United States and Canada to identify people who are strong, dependable, resilient and rugged. After hundreds of contest submissions, Cintas, Carhartt and Ducks Unlimited are proud to announce David Huskins from Denver, CO as the third quarterly winner and a Grand Prize Finalist!
David is a field technician who clears out foreclosed properties in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska. This rugged guy digs through rooms that are full of trash from the floor to the ceiling, empties deep freezers full of rotting meat, and cleans out houses that sometimes house up to 80 cats. David is Carhartt Tough!
For his tough attitude and unparalleled resilience that keeps him going back every day for more, Cintas is pleased to announce David as the third quarterly winner of $500 in Carhartt merchandise.
The Are You Carhartt Tough? Contest is still searching for North America’s toughest workers. One more quarterly winner will be chosen in January 2011 to receive $500 in Carhartt merchandise and three Grand Prize Finalists will be selected. At the contest’s completion, two Grand Prize winners will receive a weekend duck hunt trip designed by Ducks Unlimited or a trip to The STIHL TIMBERSPORTS Series in 2011.
