A year after he launched the Mayor's Challenge for Safer People and Safer Streets -- an initiative that 243 cities across the U.S. have joined -- U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx recently unveiled a new program, the Mayors' Challenge Awards.

"I am excited to announce the Mayors’ Challenge Awards to highlight the great work cities are doing, and stimulate further action on improving bicycle and pedestrian safety," Foxx said. "Awards will be considered for work relating to the seven Challenge Activities, as well as for Ladders of Opportunity, and for active engagement in Challenge events. We will ask cities to submit a descriptive narrative about their successes since joining the Challenge, and we will announce the winners at a Capstone event here in Washington, D.C."

Award winners will have the opportunity to make presentations at the Capstone event and at another related recognition event. For more information about the awards, go to www.transportation.gov/mayors-challenge.
