Children’s Drawing Contest Highlights Aim’s Core Values

GIRARD, Ohio – An Aim Transportation Solutions drawing contest highlighting the company’s core values of fun, family and work-life balance received 66 submissions from children who drew what the Aim-employed adults in their lives do at work for the company.

Aim team members were asked to share information with the children in their lives about their jobs and how their work impacts the transportation industry. Children were then asked to create drawings. Several photographs were included with the submissions.

“As a parent myself, I know my son is always questioning what I do at work,” said Joelle Hallis, Aim digital marketing manager. “I love that this contest gave Aim team members the opportunity to sit down and have a conversation with the little ones in their lives about their careers and the direct impact each of us has on the transportation industry. Not only does it open their eyes to a career path they may not have initially sought, but it gives them a real connection to the trucks they see on the road and what the grown-up in their life does to put and keep those trucks on the road and delivering the products we all use every day.”

There were four winners. Each will receive an Aim diecast truck and a $100 Amazon gift card to buy a toy or electronic device. The Aim employee with the winning child submission in each category will receive an extra day of PTO to spend with their child.

“Aim is a family organization – from being family owned and operated to the culture within every one of our facilities,” said Jessica Deane, vice president of marketing at Aim. “This contest, and the engagement we saw from so many of our employees and their kids, demonstrated our family values and warmed all of our hearts. I’m incredibly proud of our Aim marketing team member, Joelle Hallis, for proposing and implementing this contest. She really nailed it.”

The submissions and winners can be viewed in Aim’s Facebook album.
