PACE Awards Program will reward a safety star with $5,000

 The PACE Awards Program recognizes the member programs and individuals who exemplify exceptional vision, leadership and creativity in school safety activities, such as:

  • Auditing the college campus safety policy
  • Implementing districtwide safety trainings
  • Replacing playground and sports equipment
  • Purchasing a SawStop

PACE Awards give member community colleges and districts the chance to receive recognition for their outstanding work. While most schools have existing safety programs, the PACE Awards highlight programs or individuals that exceed baseline expectations and demonstrate devotion to school safety.

“Keeping students and staff safe is important every day, and what PACE really wants to celebrate with these Safety Awards are the efforts that go above and beyond the everyday,” said Scott Neufeld, director of risk management. “A School Safety Star is someone who identified a potential liability and took steps to overcome that exposure.”

In addition to statewide recognition at PACE Day, one award recipient – The School Safety Star – will also receive $5,000 to invest in a safety program, with the oversight of the PACE Risk Management team.

Complete an individual or member program nomination form, and submit to PACE by Jan. 20, 2017.

More details are available on the PACE website.
