The American Road and Transportation Builders Association’s Transportation Development Foundation is looking to honor community relations and public education efforts that enhance the image of the U.S. transportation construction industry.

ARTBA-TDF called for nominations in the following categories of its seventh annual Pride Awards on Jan. 4:

· Community Relations: Programs and activities that demonstrate positive civil involvement with the community in which a firm/agency is located
· Public-Media Relations/Education: Programs and activities that educate the public and opinion leaders about the significant contributions the transportation construction industry makes to the economy and/or quality of life

The awards program is open to all construction industry firms, agencies and associations. ARTBA membership is not required. A completed nomination and entry form must be received at the ARTBA Headquarters Building by March 17. Entry forms may be obtained by calling Rhonda Britton at 202-289-4434 or downloading them from the ARTBA website. Award winners will be notified in writing by April 10, and the awards will be presented during the 2006 ARTBA Federal Issues Program Conference, held May 16-17.
