BUILD A BETTER MOUSETRAP
The Build a Better Mousetrap Competition highlights innovative solutions to everyday challenges that local transportation professionals encounter. Your entry can be anything from the development of tools or gadgets to equipment modifications to processes that enhance safety, reduce costs, improve efficiency, or improve the quality of transportation. The purpose of this competition is to transfer technology through collecting and disseminating real-world examples of best practices and tips from the field. So think about how something you do could help another agency.
If you would prefer to submit your entry by paper copy, please contact Kim at email@example.com or 304-293-9924. We encourage you to also include photos - or video clips - that showcase your project. A WV LTAP staff member is available to help with your write-up, should you want.
