Every day, there are heroes who save lives in Missouri by educating people of all ages about the importance of safe driving. Whether they are law enforcement officers, teachers, health care representatives, or people who are just passionate about the topic, Missouri has successfully reduced fatalities on its roads for the last five years. This year, during the Bi-Annual Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety Conference, which will be held in Branson October 24 - 26 at Chateau on the Lake, these heroes will be recognized. Please nominate your hero today. Nominations are due by June 30, 2012, and any individual or group can submit nominations (even non-coalition members). Awards will be determined by July 30, 2012. Winners will be notified in August and recognized at the conference on Thursday, October 25 at the noon luncheon. Nominations are accepted through this website only. Statewide awards determined by an independent panel of judges. Regional awards selection determined by independent panel selected/organized by regional coalitions.
