LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Lauren Daniels upon the occasion of the
selection of her film as Best in the Nation by the National Road Safety
Foundation

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and pay
tribute to those young people within the great Empire State who have
made strong contributions to their communities and who serve as role
models for their peers; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
Lauren Daniels upon the occasion of the selection of her film as Best in
the Nation by the National Road Safety Foundation; and
WHEREAS, The National Road Safety Foundation is a not-for-profit group
which promotes driver safety and distributes teaching materials to
schools, police and community groups; and
WHEREAS, This year, the National Road Safety Foundation hosted a
competition which drew nearly 100 ideas for public service announcements
(PSAs) from young people in 30 states; they chose the 10 top ideas and
gave each youth a flip camera to shoot a video; and
WHEREAS, Fifteen year-old Lauren Daniels, a freshman at Oswego High
School, used her interest in video to create a PSA about distracted
driving and was subsequently chosen as the best in the nation in the
competition; and
WHEREAS, Lauren Daniels' PSA features two teenage girls who are walk-
ing; one of the girls is texting while the other is putting on makeup,
resulting in a comical accident; the same scene is then played out while
the two teens are driving an accident occurs with more somber results,
driving home the message of the dangers of distracted driving; and
WHEREAS, With her sense of civic duty and her commitment to others,
Lauren Daniels represents the best development of the potential which is
inherent in our most precious resource, our youth; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Lauren Daniels upon the occasion of the selection of her film as
Best in the Nation by the National Road Safety Foundation; and be it
further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Lauren Daniels.
