LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  six  Amsterdam  High School student
filmmakers upon the occasion of being named winners in C-SPAN's Student-
Cam 2013 competition

WHEREAS, It is the intent of this Legislative Body to recognize and  pay
tribute  to  those young people who, by achieving outstanding success in
educational competition, have inspired and brought pride to our majestic
Empire State; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
six Amsterdam High School student filmmakers upon the occasion of  being
named winners in C-SPAN's StudentCam 2013 competition; the students will
be  honored  by  representatives  from  C-SPAN  and Time Warner Cable on
Wednesday, May 1, 2013, at their school; and
  WHEREAS, StudentCam is an annual documentary competition that  encour-
ages  students  to  create short films about political and public policy
matters; this year's theme, "Message to the President," asked middle and
high school students to put together a five to eight minute  documentary
on  the  most  important  issue they think the president should consider
this year; and
  WHEREAS, Two outstanding videos were submitted by students from  Amst-
erdam  High  School,  earning  them  places  among the top 75 StudentCam
winners out of a total 1,893  entries  submitted  from  44  states,  the
District of Columbia, and Taiwan; and
  WHEREAS,  Francesca Boyer, Maddie DeLuca, and Karleigh Madej earned an
Honorable Mention for their video, "Our Future"; and
  WHEREAS, Brett Stanavich, Harrison Flint, and Brittany Roux earned  an
Honorable Mention for their video, "Stop Teen Violence"; and
  WHEREAS,  Educational  competitions  which serve to better prepare our
students for future participation in the marketplace of ideas are worthy
of praise and support; and
  WHEREAS, Poised eagerly with enthusiasm and determined purpose,  these
scholars  now  stand honorably, with just pride in their accomplishments
and in eager anticipation of future challenges, understanding and appre-
ciating the caring counsel and support provided by their teachers, advi-
sors, and parents; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
commend  six  Amsterdam High School student filmmakers upon the occasion
of being named winners in C-SPAN's StudentCam 2013 competition;  and  be
it further
  RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted  to Francesca Boyer, Maddie DeLuca, Karleigh Madej, Brett Stana-
vich, Harrision Flint, and Brittany Roux.
