On Thursday, May 25, at the Levittown Memorial Education Center in Levittown, sixth-grade finalists were chosen from twenty-nine participating schools and honored for their creative and innovative ideas for new laws. The entries touched on topics such as health care, school safety, environmental protection, child safety, and the use of electronics. Henry Russo was the winning sixth-grade contestant representing the Brother Joseph C. Fox Latin School. His law stated that citizens should be required to obtain a permit to operate a drone. This would prevent unlawful spying and ensure the privacy of individuals to promote a safer environment. At the ceremony, Henry received a certificate and a personal photograph with Senator Kemp Hannon.
Congratulations to Henry Russo for his wise contribution and participation in the government which is key to the future of all children and our democracy!
