Nominations for the Alice Award are now open!

Update (July 28): Nominations for the 2017 Alice Awards are now closed.

Save the date for The Street Trust’s annual Alice Awards on Friday, September 29 at Castaway Portland. We have much to celebrate this year, you won’t want to miss it!

Nominations for the coveted Alice Award are now open. Who would you like to toast for their exceptional contributions to active transportation in our region?

Nominations close at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 28, 2017.

Anyone can be nominated for an Alice Award, by anyone. This means nominees can range from the local activist to the elected official (though they cannot be up for election in the same year). Please note that multiple nominations do not affect the likelihood of selection for the Award, nor is the nominator’s identity considered.

One awardee will be selected for the Alice Award, and in some years an Emerging Leader or Bud Clark Award is also given out.

To get the nomination juices flowing, consider these:

  • Complete Streets and Healthy Communities Champion: Celebrate someone who fully embraces the complete streets mission. Our mission brings together three important elements of a healthy neighborhood, often intersecting on the street in safe and vibrant ways. We want to celebrate someone who is a connector, and who brings people together from different backgrounds and experiences toward a similar goal. Who has been a strong community leader in advocating for complete, healthy streets and neighborhoods?
  • The Kid at Heart: We believe that every kid should be able to safely walk or bike to school, and that investments should be prioritized for Title 1 schools around the region and state. Nominate your Safe Routes to School hero. Who has been influential in the For Every Kid campaigns or has made a difference in your community?
  • Emerging Leader: Given to a young adult under 25 who shows the inspiration young people can have in our communities
  • Bud Clark: Given to a community member who has sustained long-term support for The Street Trust’s work.

Know someone who fits in one of these categories? Nominate them here.

Join us on the evening of September 29 as we award the winner, honor our past, celebrate our vision for the future, and invigorate our members, supporters, volunteers, and staff for what’s to come.
