Award Information

Ellen R. Schmidt Award

This is the premier award of 2013, as we celebrate our 20th anniversary.

Partner of the Year Award
This award acknowledges the contributions of an organization or sponsor for furthering the mission of Safe States Alliance. Such contributions would include, but not be limited to, providing financial support for Safe States Alliance activities or by providing states with injury prevention funding or equipment (e.g., bicycle helmets, child safety seats, etc.), or through significant partnership and collaboration throughout the past year.
