As NSTA prepares to host the 2022 NSTA Annual Meeting and Convention (AMC) in Niagara Falls, NY, our Awards and Meetings Committee is making a call for nominations for NSTA awards that will be presented at the Awards and Installation Dinner, sponsored by Thomas Built Buses.

If you have not done so already, please save the date for the 2022 NSTA Annual Meeting and Convention - scheduled for July 24-27, 2022, with the Awards and Installation Dinner to be held on the night of Tuesday, July 26th. The event will be held at the Niagara Falls, Conference and Event Center.

As you know, NSTA is honored to have many committed, determined and resilient leaders within our ranks, and these individuals provide great inspiration in the field of student transportation. With an eye toward honoring these transportation professionals in July, NSTA has officially opened our NSTA Awards Program Nominations process. Please note that after a one-year hiatus, NSTA will once again be honoring a “Contractor of the Year”, and as we relaunch this prestigious award, its focus will be slightly different. Beginning with the 2022 awards cycle, the “NSTA Contractor of the Year” will honor a company, instead of a single individual. At a time when teamwork has become incredibly important in our industry, we feel this represents an important and appropriate evolution of the award.

Also, we are pleased to announce a new partnership with School Transportation News (STN) as we update our award offerings, so look for more to come with this exciting partnership!

Please take a moment to nominate a worthy recipient in any of the listed categories, as submissions are due no later than April 15, 2022.
