Municipalities and schools (public, private, or charter) will be recognized for their commitment and support of the Safe Routes to School program. Regional Safe Routes to School Coordinators can assist with nominations or municipalities and schools can self-nominate themselves. Recipients will be presented with a certificate or award depending on the level of recognition as well as listing and promotion on the NJ SRTS website and possibly other local media facilitated by Regional Coordinators. A one-page Safe Routes Recognition Levels Flyer (PDF) about the SRTS Recognition Program can be handed out to schools and municipalities interested in applying. Before you apply, make sure you have the information requested in the nomination form.
