AAA Arizona is calling for nominations for its ninth annual Crossing Guard of the Year. Each winning school and guard will receive $500. The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, March 11.

AAA encourages students, parents, school administrators, faculty, staff and community members to nominate candidates whom they believe deserve the Crossing Guard of the Year designation. Self-nominations also are accepted.

AAA’s traffic safety experts will evaluate nominations to select finalists for the award based on dedication, friendliness, professionalism and safety.

The winner will be announced on Crossing Guard Appreciation Day, April 29, and will receive a recognition plaque and a $500 gift card. AAA Arizona also will award $500 to the winning school in honor of its efforts to emphasize safety.
