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, 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.
