'Hottest Job in America' Contest Under Way

Cintas and Sqwincher want employees working in high-heat environments to enter. The deadline is Sept. 1.

The "Hottest Job in America" is under way, with employees who work in high-heat environments eligible to enter until Sept. 1. Cintas Corporation, a leading provider of on-site safety services and training solutions, and The Sqwincher Corporation, a leader in electrolyte replacement drinks, launched it together. The prize package includes cooling products and a pair of NFL tickets.

"With summer in full swing, people such as landscapers, road workers, miners and factory workers can easily overheat," said Jay Bruscato, vice president, First Aid & Safety at Cintas. "By rewarding a hard-working employee with prizes to beat the heat, we're bringing awareness to the dangers of workplace heat stress and the solutions that can help alleviate it."

To be eligible, contest applicants must identify why their work environment is hotter than the average workplace. The individual with the most compelling story will receive two tickets to a 2014 season NFL game, Cintas moisture-wicking performance polos, cooling collars, and a variety of Sqwincher products. To submit an entry, apply online at www.cintas.com/hottestjob.
