 The Manufacturers Alliance for Child Passenger Safety (MACPS)
National Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Hall of Fame
Minimize

CPS advocates come from all walks of life: vehicle manufactures, car seat manufactures, injury prevention programs, government agencies, first responders and even your neighbor who has a passion for child safety. The MACPS will honor these individuals and preserve the history of the CPS activities each year with The Child Passenger Safety Hall of Fame award. During CPS week, the leaders of their industry/organization will be recognized and remembered for the indelible impressions they have left on the safety of their community and/or the nation. They are recommended and elected by the MACPS membership for their leadership in their field of design, manufacturing, education and/or advocacy.

 Nomination Process
Minimize
   For the MACPS Hall of Fame Class, there will be two categories of nominations: the “Legacy Category” and the “Contemporary Category.” (Currently Active) Candidates will still be inducted into one Hall of Fame, however, the nominations will be voted upon separately in these two distinct categories.
   Requirements for the Legacy Category - Any person who has been active in a principal role with any Child Passenger Safety program/activities for 20 or more years will be considered a Legacy candidate. A principal role is director, chief executive officer, program coordinator, instructor/educator, technician, volunteer, designer, etc.
   Former principal players that are not currently active may also be nominated as possible candidates for the Legacy Category. It is not feasible to list every possibility regarding principal role and the Legacy Category. Through the vetting process of the applications, the CPS Hall of Fame Selection Committee will examine all the credentials; however, the Committee will use 20 years as its initial benchmark and guideline to help assure the nominee qualifies for consideration in the Legacy Category. Anyone who nominates a candidate in the Legacy Category should clearly indicate, as part of the nomination letter, that the nomination is being made specifically for consideration in the Legacy Category of the CPS Hall of Fame.
   Requirements for the Contemporary Category - Any person who is or has been active in a principal role with any Child Passenger Safety program/activities will be considered a contemporary candidate. A principal role is director, chief executive officer, program coordinator, instructor/educator, technician, volunteer, designer, etc. There is no minimum timeframe for participation in CPS program/activities.
Note:
This process may be revised by the MACPS at any time.
