Nominate Your Favorite Motorized RTP Project for Award

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Coalition for Recreational Trails (CRT), a federation of national and regional trail-related organizations, is pleased to announce its 2014 Annual Achievement Awards. The Coalition for Recreational Trails sponsors the Annual Achievement Awards as part of the ongoing effort to build awareness and appreciation of the highly successful Recreational Trails Program (RTP).

Outstanding projects funded by RTP are honored at the awards ceremony on Capitol Hill, the first week in June, during the annual celebration for the American Recreation Coalition's Great Outdoors Month. Members of Congress will be encouraged to join us in honoring the achievements of their constituents.

Award winners will be selected from projects nominated by public agencies, trail administrators or other project sponsors.  Projects must be completed in order to receive an award. Projects completed before 2006 are ineligible.

Project award categories will include: Maintenance & Rehabilitation; Construction & Design; Education & Communication; Multiple-Use Management & Corridor Sharing; Environment & Wildlife Compatibility; Accessibility Enhancement and Youth Conservation/Service Corps.

Now is your chance to nominate an outstanding project, and to encourage the sponsor(s) of an excellent project in your state to submit a nomination as well. A nomination form can be downloaded at http://atfiles.org/files/doc/CRT_2014_Nomination_Form.doc. We are also again encouraging those making nominations to solicit support from their Members of Congress- both U.S. Representatives and U.S. Senators- to build awareness of excellent RTP-funded projects and the RTP program itself. Additional information can be found on the nomination form.

The nomination form and any supporting materials, including pictures, should be returned by March 28, 2014 to the Chair of the Coalition's Awards Committee:

Duane Taylor
Director of Federal Affairs
Motorcycle Industry Council
1235 South Clark Street, Suite 600

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call him at (703) 416-0444 or send him an e-mail at dtaylor@mic.org. Winners should be notified no later than April 30, 2014.

We hope you will join us in this important effort to recognize the significant contributions to trail-related recreation that the Recreational Trails Program is supporting all across the country.
