In accepting this award Safe Routes to School National Partnership director Deb Hubsmith remarked, "This award shines a light on the work of dedicated policy makers, engineers and planners, countless parent volunteers, non-profits, committed educators and enthusiastic children who are true game changers in tens of thousands of communities across the country.
