The Safe Routes Ambassadors received a total of 27 nominations for 13 individuals to receive letters of commendation and certificates of appreciation. These awards were handed out in the week following Crossing Guard Appreciation Day, which was May 4th, 2010.
Stay tuned for next year’s celebration…. In the meantime, thank your crossing guard every day, and get geared up for International Walk and Bike to School Day!
You can register your event here, and a form will be available soon to indicate interest in hosting the Safe Routes Ambassadors as the 2010 flagship school.
Each year, the Safe Routes Ambassadors host an event at one lucky school in Chicago, helping to coordinate, bring attention to, and support the school’s walking and biking efforts! Flagship schools in years past include:
2009: Grimes Elementary
2008: Till Elementary
2007: Peterson Elementary
