We are pleased to announce the 2015 New Jersey Safe Routes to School Recognition Program Winners! This spring, the NJ Safe Routes to School program recognized a total of 129 winners for 2015 – far more winners than last year! There were 4 Gold level winners, 15 Silver, 32 Bronze and 78 First Step winners from communities all across the state of New Jersey. It was especially promising to see more than double the amount of Bronze winners and many more First Step winners compared to last year. Recipients of the program are recognized for their commitment and support of the Safe Routes to School program by enabling and encouraging their children to walk and bike to school.
SRTS Regional Coordinators from Transportation Management Associations across New Jersey will be honoring and awarding NJ Safe Routes to School Recognition Program winners either at their annual awards meetings or at a special ceremony. Contact your SRTS Regional Coordinator to find out more and to get a head start on applying for recognition next year!
