Tire Business is seeking nominations for its Tire Dealer Humanitarian Award, which recognizes an independent tire dealer or retreader who, during the past year, has made significant contributions to the betterment of his or her community through charitable and/or public service work. Now in its 26th year, the award has become one of the most coveted honors in the tire industry. The person selected as the winner will have demonstrated an unselfish commitment to the betterment of others. Nominations will be judged by an independent committee outside of the tire industry. The winner will receive the Tire Dealer Humanitarian Award Medal and a $2,500 donation to the charity of his or her choice. The award will be presented at the 2019 Tire Industry Association's Tire Industry Honors Awards ceremony during the SEMA Show Nov. 4 in Las Vegas.

The award is open to any independent tire dealer or retreader in North America, regardless of business size or sales volume. Nominees must have an ownership stake in the business.
