The Safe Routes to School National Conference will take place August 19-21, 2009 in Portland, Oregon.  A call for proposals is currently open with a February 2, 2009 deadline.  To submit your presentation or poster proposal, visit
Presentations and posters should exemplify Safe Routes to School programs' ability to address a range of issues that affect our society, and give schoolchildren the tools to change habits and stay two steps ahead of health issues, environmental problems, and traffic congestion. The conference will offer 90-minute workshops and interactive 180-minute training opportunities that allow for more in-depth discussion and hands-on events. Presenters should focus their messages on a single age group (K-5, middle school) or geographic location (urban, suburban, rural). Any individual, organization, business, non-profit, or public agency that is actively engaged in Safe Routes to School and can demonstrate experiential success is invited to submit a proposal for presentation and/or posters.

The Safe Routes to School National Conference is co-presented by the Safe Routes to School National Partnership and the National Center for Safe Routes to School, with hosting and coordination by the Bicycle Transportation Alliance in Portland, Oregon.
