WASHINGTON, D.C. — The TRB Technical Activities Division’s Planning and Environment Group is holding its seventh annual competition to find top methods for communicating transportation concepts to non-professional audiences. Entries, which should focus on best practices in communicating transportation modeling and simulation to the public, are due by Aug. 5, 2013.

Additional information on the contest and entry instructions are available online at https://sites.google.com/site/trbcommitteeada60/jjpcompetition/2013-transportation-modeling.

There is no restriction on the form of communication — graphics, illustrations, photos, software, demonstrations, interactive exercises or games — used to convey the message. Entries may be examples of successful communications efforts or techniques that can be used to communicate transportation concepts to non-transportation professional audiences.

The entries will be evaluated by a panel of judges representing technical as well as communication disciplines. The winner will be announced at the 2014 TRB 93rd Annual Meeting, Jan. 12-16, 2014, in Washington, D.C.

The top 10 entries will be showcased in a poster session at the TRB Annual Meeting and featured in an article in TRB’s TR News.
