Grassroots Award Application


Established in 2011, the Chapter Grassroots Recognition program recognizes chapters at one of three levels鈥擝ronze, Silver, or Gold鈥攆or outstanding grassroots performance. It also provides a self-evaluation tool to help chapters continue to improve their grassroots activities.

The Bronze, Silver and Gold levels of achievement are based on a point system for actions and policies the chapter has in place. Performance is measured through a chapter self-evaluation like ABC鈥檚 STEP Safety Management System.
