|WE ARE LOOKING FOR HEROS
2010 NAPT Heroism Award – Sponsored by Blue bird
Webster's dictionary defines a hero as "a person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his/her brave deeds and noble qualities."
Keeping a cool head while transporting 50 boisterous students during rush hour traffic sounds like a hero's job to me but that's just a normal day! When things truly go awry, as when buses are broadsided by falling lumber, catch fire or a child stops breathing on the bus, that’s when heros shine. Past winners of the Heroism Award have managed just these sorts of trauma. And they have done so brilliantly.
Each year at the NAPT Annual Conference (Summit) and Trade Show, the NAPT Heroism Award, sponsored by the Blue Bird Corporation, is bestowed upon individuals who perform selfless acts of courage. Please consider nominating someone for this award if they meet the following criteria:
An application must be submitted by an NAPT member and endorsed by two colleagues.
- The live-saving act must be performed by a pupil transportation professional or the action must directly affect a pupil transportation program
- The Heroism Award committee will consider:
- threat to one's life
- the number of lives saved
- the impact on the pupil transportation industry
- the impact on individuals' operation or program
Please submit an application to NAPT Headquarters at 1840 Western Ave., Albany, NY 12203, postmarked no later than September 1.
The winner will receive an all expenses paid trip to the NAPT Annual Conference and a commemorative plaque. Winners are notified by the Committee Chair no later than October 1.
