LHA NEWS RELEASE
Lincoln Highway Association announces new award program recognizing completion of coast-to-coast travel over the Lincoln Highway.
The Board of Directors of the Lincoln Highway Association approved the initiation of a new recognition program called “The Coast-To-Coast Completion Award” at its Board Meeting on February 13, 2014. The new program provides a means for recognizing individuals who have
traveled the entire distance of the Lincoln Highway. A certificate of achievement and a commemorative pin will be issued by the LHA to those who qualify for the award based upon successful processing of the application form designed for this purpose.
Anyone who has traveled the entire route is eligible but are required to fill out the application form, which is below as a PDF or you can get one directly from committee chair John Jackson by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no application fee or deadline for submission. As many applications as possible will be completed by the review committee in time to announce the names of recipients during the Annual Conference in Tooele, Utah the week of June 17 to 21, 2014.
Future applications can be submitted and awards issued at any time during the year but only those applications received by April 30th will be announced at each year’s Annual Conference.
Many Lincoln Highway enthusiasts have already completed the coast-to-coast travel. This is a significant achievement which warrants recognition in a special way through this program. The recognition program is also intended to inspire others to consider such an adventure as a way of enriching their Lincoln Highway experience.
