The National Child Passenger Safety Board applauds every person working in the field of child passenger safety, no matter their job title. The efforts made in this field should be considered one of the most successful public health and injury prevention campaigns of our time. The success lies in lives saved, serious injuries prevented, medical professionals and caregivers educated to properly restrain our most vulnerable passengers. None of this could be accomplished without "boots on the ground," an army of dedicated technicians and instructors who work passionately, and often give much of their personal time, to ensure the safety of our nation's children. Since 1998, we have assembled an army, or a legion of angels. There are currently more than 35,100 certified child passenger safety technicians and 1,500 certified instructors who train to certify technicians to educate caregivers on the proper use of car and booster seats and help them install their seats correctly. There is a true brother and sisterhood enjoyed by those who work in this field.
The National Child Passenger Safety Board chose to create an annual award to recognize one exemplary technician as well as one exceptional instructor for their work and dedication to this field. AAA, an unwavering supporter of child passenger safety, generously offered to a "thank you" gift of $500 to accompany the Board's award. Read about the nominations process and requirements.
