The students honored are part of the AAA School Safety Patrols program, acting as school leaders by teaching other students about traffic safety and serving as role models for younger children. Participating students complete training in traffic safety so they can protect students from the hazards of crossing roads and highways on the way to and from school, assist bus drivers in safely transporting students and serve other leadership functions under the direction of school officials.
