About the Innovative Initiatives Program
The Safe States Alliance Innovative Initiatives Program & Annual
Award is a project designed to provide members of the Safe States
Alliance with opportunities to celebrate and showcase the successes of
their injury and violence prevention programs. An "innovative initiative"
is defined as a unique and creative program or activity that has the
potential to substantially decrease injuries and violence in a state,
city, or community.
"Innovative Initiative of the Year" Award
Annually, Safe States Alliance members are invited to submit "innovative initiatives” that have been implemented by or in conjunction with their organizations and/or programs. Up to four finalists are selected from the submissions entered, and one finalist is selected by a vote of the full membership of Safe States to receive the "Innovative Initiative of the Year” Award. Nominated programs must be members of Safe States.
