About the Catalyzing Education Award
Nominees for this award are selected based on the most engaging/original education event(s). VTA has one nomination for Community Outreach and Public Engagement’s educational series: Ask VTA. Ask VTA has been developed to provide an opportunity for the public to have a deeper discussion through a facilitated Q&A session about the projects and programs that VTA delivers for the residents of Santa Clara County.
About the Catalyzing Placemaking Award
Nominees for this award are selected based on the best/most vibrant project changing the face of the community. VTA has two infrastructures nominated in this category: Milpitas BART and the Berryessa Transit Center. Voters can only select one as their preferred candidate to win. Both stations were constructed during BART Silicon Valley Phase I.
