The America’s Transportation Awards, sponsored by AASHTO, AAA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, was created a decade ago to showcase the excellent work done by state departments of transportation to deliver quality transportation services to the American public. The stories that are told through the contest entries help build support for transportation investment at the federal, state, and local levels.

This year, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the competition and the incredible projects that have made such a tremendous difference in our communities over the years. As it was upon its inception, our goal is to make sure the public and our political leaders know the great work all of you do to help your communities and states get from one place to another every day. 

All nominated projects will first compete on a regional level. After all regional meetings have taken place over the summer, the three highest scoring projects from each region  will be named the "Top 12" and will go on to compete for the top two national prizes. The Grand Prize is selected by a panel of judges, while the People's Choice Award will be decided by online popular vote.Winners of those top two prizes will each receive $10,000 to donate to a charity or scholarship of their choice.
