Goodyear reveals finalists for Name the Blimp contest

21 April 2014

After receiving nearly 15,000 unique submissions for its national “Name the Blimp” contest, The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company (NASDAQ: GT) has selected ten finalist names for its newest blimp.

The finalist names were chosen based on criteria, including how the name reflects the history of airships, the majesty of lighter-than-air flight and Goodyear´s track record of delivering superior performance and innovation.

The new blimp, which took its first test flight one month ago, is an all-new, state-of-the-art version of the tire company´s world-famous icon. The new airship is larger, faster, and more maneuverable and builds on the company´s legacy as the world´s leading builder and operator of airships.

The finalists include the following 10 names: Adventurer, Ambassador, Commitment, Excursion, Explorer, Goodwill, Inspiration, Pride of Goodyear, Resolute, Wingfoot One.

Fans can vote on their favorite name by visiting www.Goodyear.com/NametheBlimp through May 9. The individual who originally submitted the winning name will receive the grand prize of access to the blimp for a day. The other nine finalists will each receive a set of Goodyear tires.

The blimp will be christened this summer.
