NDDOT wins international and regional AAMVA Awards

For Immediate Release: Sep 25 2023
STATEWIDE, N.D. – The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) has announced the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) Highway Safety Division as the recipient of two 2023 Communication Awards.

Submissions for the 2023 awards were conducted, produced, implemented and/or developed between Oct. 1, 2021 and Sept. 30, 2022.

The ND Sober Ride – Halloween Campaign is the recipient of the Regional and International Social Media Award. ND Sober Ride is a program aimed at reducing impaired drivers on North Dakota roads through ride-hailing vouchers. The Halloween holiday has been very successful for ND Sober Ride, with 84 rides given during the 2021 weekend and 143 in 2022.

The TV ad Choices won the Regional Advertising Award. This ad features Shayna Monson from Dickinson, ND. Shayna shares her story of survival to deter others from driving impaired. The crash took away so much from so many, but Shayna is determined to let her story be a reminder to always drive sober or find a sober ride.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for the important work we do; however, the real reward is knowing these campaigns are making a difference in the lives of North Dakotans by encouraging them to take personal responsibility every time they travel,” said NDDOT Highway Safety Division Director Karin Mongeon.
International awards will be presented this week at the Annual International Conference (AIC) in Madison, WI. The regional awards will be presented in November in Des Moines, IA.

AAMVA’s awards program fosters a tradition of excellence in the motor vehicle and law enforcement community by honoring individuals, teams and organizations who have committed their time and resources to safety initiatives, outstanding customer service, the prevention of fraud and communications programs throughout North America. This year included a record-breaking number of submissions.
