The Nevada Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) Awards recognize individuals and organizations who have made
significant contributions over the past year to transportation safety in Nevada. The program recognizes
accomplishments in the public and private sector by individuals, state and local governments, federal agencies,
businesses, and non-profit organizations that promote traffic safety. This program is sponsored by the Nevada
Department of Transportation (NDOT), the Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS), and other traffic safety
partners that are dedicated to reducing death and injury on Nevada’s roadways.
The SHSP Awards are presented annually at the Nevada Traffic Safety Summit. As the summit location rotates
between Northern and Southern Nevada each year, the SHSP Awards are granted to individuals or organizations
from that region. The 2020 Summit is in Northern Nevada and awards will be granted to recipients south of Tonopah.
Criteria for Selection
There are eight award categories listed below. The Nevada SHSP Awards Committee will select the award
recipients. Those eligible for nomination have made an outstanding effort to eliminate serious injury and fatal
crashes on Nevada roadways by furthering traffic safety initiatives through engineering, enforcement, education,
emergency management, and/or advocacy.
