Nominations Due June 11 for GHSA Awards

The top award goes to someone whose career has been marked by outstanding leadership that significantly improved highway safety.

The Governors Highway Safety Association is nearing the end of the nomination period for its 2011 awards, which will be presented during its 2011 Annual Meeting in Cincinnati (Sept. 25-28). The top GHSA award is the James J. Howard Highway Safety Trailblazer Award, and it honors someone who has provided "sustained outstanding leadership in endeavors that significantly improve highway safety."

Last year's Howard winner was Charles "Chuck" Hurley, who worked for the National Safety Council and later was CEO of Mothers Against Drunk Driving. He helped to make Click It or Ticket a national campaign and also worked to make 0.08 blood alcohol level the law of the land, according to GHSA.

The other awards for which nominations are being accepted are the Kathryn J.R. Swanson Public Service Award, given to an individual who has made notable improvements in the management or implementation of a highway safety program or policy or provided outstanding service to GHSA, federal safety agencies, or other national highway safety organizations; and the Peter K. O'Rourke Special Achievement Award, recognizing notable achievements in highway safety accomplished during the prior calendar year by individuals, coalitions, organizations, nonprofit groups, businesses, government agencies, universities, or programs.
