Founded in 1985, the Texas Auto Writers Association has grown to become one of the most recognized and reputable automotive press organizations in the industry. TAWA’s mission is to promote quality and accuracy in automotive journalism and to disseminate information about the automotive industry through news-related print, online and broadcast media. On behalf of its Journalist, Manufacturer and Associate members, TAWA strives to create channels between companies and individuals within the industry who might not have otherwise connected, thus empowering the individual journalist members while promoting reader, viewer and listener awareness of the automotive industry.
TAWA’s mission is to promote quality and accuracy in automotive journalism and to disseminate information about the automotive industry.
The Association seeks to increase the number of information sources for its members through the exchange of resource information among members and similar organizations around the country. In addition to promoting journalism opportunities and professionalism internally, TAWA funds scholarships to journalism students.
As part of TAWA’s efforts to serve members who cover the automotive industry, the association produces two popular driving events each year - the Texas Auto Roundup in the spring and the Texas Truck Rodeo in the fall. These competitions allow media members to drive and evaluate vehicles entered by manufacturers hoping to walk away with the highly-coveted Car of Texas or Truck of Texas honors. But perhaps even more significantly, these two nationally-recognized events also allow auto industry executives and associated vendors to meet and interact with members of the automotive media in a relaxed, purposeful forum.
Through these two driving events and other TAWA projects, membership in the association presents outstanding value to media members as well as industry and associate members.
TEXAS AUTO ROUNDUP
The Texas Auto Roundup is an opportunity to interact with TAWA automotive journalists at the famous Texas Motor Speedway in their evaluation of the latest cars on the market. TAWA secures the road course and surrounding grounds for a two-day-long evaluation of vehicles. The host hotel is the DFW Marriott Hotel & Golf Club at Champions Circle in Ft. Worth, directly across from the speedway.
