MayorsChallengeOn June 1st the Mayors’ Challenge for Safer People and Safer Streets announced that USDOT is now accepting nominations for the Mayors’ Challenge Awards program. Communities participating in the Mayors’ Challenge can nominate themselves for consideration for one of several possible Mayors’ Challenge Awards that recognize work done as part of the Challenge. The awards entry form can be found at

The awards will be presented at the Mayors’ Challenge Summit planned for the week of September 19th and will provide a focal point as USDOT recognizes and highlights the work of all Mayors’ Challenge communities to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety. The awards submissions will also help tell the story of the Challenge and measure the success of the initiative.

The link above has detailed instructions on how to complete the nomination form for your community, and the Challenge Awards fact sheet is attached for your reference. We are also asking you to submit photos to use illustrating your work and successes. Instructions on how to submit your photos via Flickr are attached, too. The deadline for all submissions is June 30. See flyer for more information.
