Beginning September 9, 2020, as students are starting to return to school, Parachute and FedEx Express Canada are accepting nominations for Canada’s favourite crossing guards.

Do you know a crossing guard who has made an impact in your community?

Parachute’s search for Canada’s favourite crossing guard continues this year!

Tell us about your favourite crossing guard:

  • How have they kept kids safe?
  • Why are they a good role model?
  • Remember to attach photos of your crossing guard in action!

Contest and nomination details

We welcome students, educators, parents and community leaders to recognize the contributions of those who play an important role in pedestrian safety by helping children make a safe journey to-and-from school. Encourage kids and schools you know to participate! Up to three winners will be selected.

This round of nominations opens September 9 and will close November 6, 2020. Nominations made in February and March of 2020, before we suspended nominations due to COVID-19-related school closures, don’t need to be resubmitted and will be considered along with the fall nominations.
