Over the years, ARTBA’s “Sentinel Awards” have honored advocates who help build public and political support for increased surface transportation investment.

The awards recognize extraordinary, documented grassroots lobbying activity by individual members and/or corporate grassroots programs that help advance the transportation construction industry’s legislative goals at the federal level.

We’d like to learn more about your 2015 efforts to help educate members of Congress about the need to fix the federal Highway Trust Fund and pass a long-term highway and transit bill. Describe your program in 150 words or less and provide any measurement/metrics of its results.

Nominations can be submitted via email to ARTBA’s Kashae Williams at, or 202.289.4434.  The deadline is Sept. 1.

Awards will be presented this fall during the ARTBA National Convention.
