Nominate a Bus Guardian Hero for
a chance to win a $250 Gift Card

Synovia will donate $1,000 to the non-profit of choice in the winning driver’s district

We know that school bus drivers play an essential role in the school day of countless students. 

And that some drivers go above and beyond to ensure the welfare of their student riders. 

We’re looking to honor the finest school bus drivers in North America, and honoring them as official Bus Guardian Heroes. This is a new program in 2021 inspired by the tremendous sacrifices school bus drivers exhibited during the challenges of 2020. 

You can find the full rules here, but the basics are below: 

  • Bus Drivers have to be nominated by staff, teachers, principals or even parents. In short, we want the people around these drivers to nominate those who deliver exemplary service 
  • No Bus Driver can nominate themselves. 
  • We will name 4 Bus Guardian Heroes a year, one for each quarter, and will accept nominations on a rotating basis throughout the year 
  • Synovia reserves the right to honor the comprehensive rules here. 

Please complete the information below to provide some basic information about the driver and what makes them a Bus Guardian.
