BTA announces Alice Award winners

Posted by on March 18th, 2013 at 10:57 am

The BTA’s Alice Awards event isn’t until May 4th; but the winners have already been announced. See the press release below for details:

March 14th, 2013 – Portland, Oregon – The Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA) is excited to announce the winners of the 2013 Alice Awards & Auction, to be held on May 4th. This is the 18th year the BTA will honor select Oregon citizens for their work to make bicycling safe, more convenient, and more accessible.

As part of the BTA’s celebration around reaching the 50,000th student with bicycle safety curriculum, awardees were selected based on their efforts to make the nation, Oregon, and Portland a better place for bicycling.

The winners of the 2013 Alice Awards are:

US Rep. Peter DeFazio – Bud Clark Lifetime Achievement Award Winner

Alison Hill Graves – Alice Award Winner

Kristin Warren – Alice Award Winner

The BTA will also honor Jay Graves for his contributions to the community at the Alice Awards on May 4th. Graves has previously been the recipient of both an Alice Award and a Bud Clark Lifetime Achievement Award. As Graves steps away from his role at Bike Gallery, the BTA is excited to thank him once again for his hard work and dedication to bicycling over the years.

US Rep. Peter DeFazio – Bud Clark Lifetime Achievement Award Winner

Peter DeFazio is a stalwart supporter of bicycling and Safe Routes to School. In the past year he stood as the only member of congress to speak out in support of Safe Routes to School from the committee floor. He works hard to build better transportation policy and increased funding for active transportation.

In Washington DC, he amplifies the voice of people who ride bicycles and helps raise important issues that matter to people here in Oregon. Historically, he’s also helped bring increased funding for projects to the state.

Alison Hill Graves – Alice Award Winner

Alison Hill Graves built a new era for the Community Cycling Center and helped usher in a new way of thinking around equity and inclusion for the bicycle movement, both in Portland and nationally.

She began working for the CCC in 2006 and has overseen many successes at the organization, including the opening of the New Columbia Bike Repair Hub in 2012.

Kristen Warren – Alice Award Winner

Kristen Warren incorporates bicycle safety education into her health curriculum at Gresham High School, making her the first Gresham-Barlow teacher to do so in recent years.

Her teaching at Gresham High School means young adult students will learn how to ride bicycles safely and legally. Her work unlocks the environmental, financial, and health benefits of bicycling for students and families in the Gresham area.
