2017 YPT Award

2017 YPT Award Applications due Dec. 31, 2016 at 11:59pm

Dear Members,

Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT) was created to fill the void presented to young professionals in the large, established transportation organizations. YPT aims to give young professionals the opportunities to take leadership roles, participate in networking events, and grow their careers. As part of that effort, YPT has established an annual awards program that aims to go beyond the standard “Emerging Star” category that is often the only category that YPT members would be eligible for in other organizations.

Award Categories

YPT Awards are presented annually. This year, there are two award categories that will be presented:

Young Professionals Transportation Project of the Year – An award for a project that had/is having a significant impact and where young professional(s) played a significant role. Projects will be evaluated by their impact for the transportation industry or local transportation system and the roles that young professionals played in them. All project types are eligible from studies and designs that are being implemented to finished products already being used.

Young Professionals Excellence in Innovation/Research of the Year – An award that will go to a product, paper, invention, etc. in the transportation industry where young professionals played a significant role. This will be judged based on what the innovation/research is and what role young professionals played. All types of innovations and research are eligible.

Prize

Winners of each award will receive a happy hour at their local chapter sponsored by YPT International, a plaque recognizing their achievement, and a year of free YPT membership.

Let's highlight another part of the #transportation industry - passenger aviation - that so many of us rely on for business travel and personal adventures. How many #young #professionals do we have in the #aviation sector? #transport #adventure #cloudy☁️ @bwi_airport 🎶Rivers and roads, rivers and roads.

The main line was completed in 1923 after 9 years of construction; President Warren G. Harding traveled to Alaska for the occasion and personally drove in the Golden Spike to finish the job. In 1943, the Railroad completed a 12-mile spur to the tiny port town of Whittier. In total, the Alaska Railroad provides regularly scheduled passenger service along 482 miles of track – an expanse greater than the distance between #Boston and #Washington, D.C. #friday #trains #transportation Check this amazing #sunset shot, shared by our equally amazing Director of Chapter Development @wbybanana.
