Following two years of incredible response to NADA’s call for video submissions celebrating women who work in all areas of car or truck dealerships, we are pleased to announce the 2019 Women Driving Auto Retail video contest.

In its third year, the video contest, part of NADA’s Women Driving Auto Retail initiative, aims to amplify the voices of women working in dealerships and encourage other women to pursue automotive careers.

While the number of women working in dealerships has hovered around 19 percent of overall dealership employment, 2019 has been a record year with more women taking leadership roles in automotive retail. There has never been a more opportune time for women to enter the automotive retail industry and build a longstanding career with enduring opportunities.

If you’re a woman working in the auto retail industry, help spread the word to other women about why they should pursue a career in auto retail: Share your career story in three minutes or less. Tell other women who you are, what you do, why you love it, and why the auto retail industry is a great place for women to succeed. For inspiration, view past video entries here.

NADA will announce 10 video semifinalists on Friday, January 31, 2020. The grand-prize winner will be announced during NADA Show 2020 in February.

Semifinalists will receive a $500 gift card. The grand-prize winner will receive a $1,000 gift card plus complimentary registration to NADA Show 2021 in New Orleans, along with a $1,000 travel stipend.

Read the contest rules and submit your video at www.womendrivingautoretail.org. To be eligible, all videos must be posted by December 31, 2019 and shared publicly on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn or Twitter and include the hashtag: #WomenInAutomotive.
