    Nominate Your Favorite Motorized RTP Project for Award
    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
    The Coalition for Recreational Trails (CRT), a federation of national and regional trail-related organizations, is pleased to announce its 2011 achievement awards to recognize outstanding trail projects funded by the national Recreational Trails Program (RTP). The awards will be presented on June 15, 2011, in Washington, D.C. during Great Outdoors Week 2011 (June 13-19) as part of the CRT's ongoing effort to build awareness and appreciation of this highly successful program, which has greatly enhanced the quantity and quality of trail experiences available to the public. The CRT will be holding the awards ceremony on Capitol Hill and will encourage Members of Congress to join in honoring the outstanding achievements of their constituents.
    Award winners will be selected from projects nominated by public agencies, trail administrators or other project sponsors. Projects must be completed in order to receive an award. In addition, projects completed before 1998 are ineligible. Project award categories will include: construction and design; maintenance and rehabilitation; education and communication initiatives; accessibility enhancement; multiple-use management or "corridor sharing"; environment/wildlife compatibility; and use of youth conservation/service corps.
    Now is your chance to nominate an outstanding project and to encourage the sponsor(s) of an excellent project in your state to submit a nomination as well. A nomination form can be downloaded at
    The form and any supporting materials, including pictures, should be returned by the new, earlier application deadline -- March 31, 2011 -- to the Chair of the Coalition's Awards Committee:
    Duane Taylor
    Director of Federal Affairs
    Motorcycle Industry Council
    1235 South Clark Street, Suite 600
    Arlington, Virginia 22202
    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call him at (703) 416-0444 or send him an e-mail at dtaylor@mic.org. Winners should be notified no later than April 30, 2011.
    We hope you will join us in this important effort to recognize the significant contributions to trail-related recreation that the Recreational Trails Program is supporting all across the country.
