Who are the best crossing guards in Northwest Philadelphia?

Whether you’re driving past, or walking your child to, a Philadelphia school, you see them every day of the week.

They’re the crossing guards responsible for helping Philly’s kids get to and from school safely. In many cases, they’re also community staples.

NewsWorks would like to know who your favorite crossing guards are in the Northwest for an upcoming series of stories.

Want to nominate someone? By all means, send along the guard’s name, location and reason for nominating them either in the comments section or via email (Germantown/West Oak Lane; Mt. Airy/Chestnut Hill and Manayunk/Roxborough/East Falls).

Deadline for nominations is Nov. 28.
