    I have noticed that 3M and the Australasian College of Road Safety (ACRS) have invited entries in the

    second year of the 3M-ACRS Diamond Road Safety Award, with entries officially opening on 1st April 2012.

    What's it all about?

    This award calls for any road safety practitioner from the public or private sectors (which covers people like Road Engineers, Contractors, Road Safety Officers, Road Safety Equipment Manufacturers, Asset Managers, Town Planners etc) to submit highly innovative, cost-effective road safety initiatives/programmes which they have recently developed that stand out from normal practice and deliver significant improvements in road safety for the community. Road safety affects us all, and 3M are pleased to be able to actively contribute to this campaign and drive road safety initiatives.

    The prize

    An individual Team Leader from the winning project will receive a trip to the USA to attend the 43rd ATSSA Annual Convention & Traffic Expo in San Diego, California in February 2012. They will then travel to 3M Company Headquarters in St Paul, Minnesota to learn more about 3M's incredible technologies and innovative solutions.

    When will the winner be drawn?

    The winning entry will be announced at the ACRS Road Safety Conference Dinner in Sydney on 9th August 2012. All eligible members of the winning project will be presented with the award.

    Who will judge entries?

    All entries will be judged by an independent committee of industry representatives, established by the ACRS specifically for this award.
