Top Nominee for the 2004 Tranny Award for Highway Management Program in Recognition of Excellence in Transportation in the State of California

 

The TRANNY Awards, provided by the California Transportation Foundation (CTF), are annually presented to deserving persons, projects, and programs representing outstanding transportation achievements in the State of California.  The name "TRANNY" is adapted from other award programs like the Emmys and the Tonys.  In addition to the TRANNYs, CTF provides scholarships for transportation education, aids transportation employees during times of hardship, funds memorials and honorary freeway signs and hosts educational seminars.

The California Transportation Foundation (CTF) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation established in 1988.  An 18-member Board of Directors and a volunteer Executive Officer direct the Foundation.  It does not receive funding from any state agency, nor does it participate in political campaigns, lobby or act as an advocate for projects.  CTF depends solely on volunteer help, donations and event fees to accomplish its programs.

The first TRANNY Awards banquets were held in conjunction with the University of California Institute for Transportation Studies, ITS Conference.  Now, the Awards are held in Sacramento the day before the May meeting of the California Transportation Commission.

CTF presents principal TRANNY Awards to the outstanding Transportation Person, Project and Organization of the Year.  The Foundation presents other TRANNY Awards to individuals and organizations in recognition of superior accomplishments in various categories.  Individual awards recognize lifetime or specific achievements.  Project awards recognize work completed during the preceding year, and Program awards recognize superior operating results.
