ADTSEA TEACHER EXCELLENCE AWARD
In Honor of Frank Kenel
AMERICAN DRIVER AND TRAFFIC SAFETY EDUCATION ASSOCIATION
The American Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association’s (ADTSEA) Teacher Excellence Award (TEA) sponsored by The National Road Safety Foundation (NRSF), honors outstanding driver and traffic safety educators.
The non-profit National Road Safety Foundation has been a strong supporter of driver education throughout its more than 50 years. NRSF produces and distributes, at no charge, educational films, teaching manuals and public service campaigns for use by professionals in driver education, traffic safety, public health and law enforcement. More than a million copies of the Foundation's films and materials have been distributed nationwide. Based in New York City, NRSF was founded in 1962 by Fraydun Manocherian, who as a teen, lost two friends to a drunk driver. For more information, visit www.nrsf.org.

What Helps a New Driver? More Driving
How can we keep our kids safe as they’re learning to drive?

Some think the main problem is teenage irresponsibility, said Robert D. Foss, the director emeritus of the Center for the Study of Young Drivers at the Highway Safety Research Center of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“That’s wrong,” he said. “There certainly are more issues with impulsivity than among adults, but that’s a matter of degree.” The real problem is lack of experience, and the only way to get to the other side is to have teenagers do more driving. Read more here.

 

It is Safer to Drive During the Day

 

As night falls, it’s harder to see and to be seen. Even familiar surroundings look different seen under street lights and lit up by headlights. It’s no wonder crash rates are higher at night for everyone—including experienced drivers. Read more here.

 

 

National Student Safety Program
The National Student Safety Program (NSSP) exists for youth to develop leadership, positive relationships, and programs that help to reduce death and injury on our nation’s highways through traffic safety education.  NSSP celebrates 61 proud years of providing youth with an annual opportunity to share teen developed programs.  We invite you to be a part of this exciting conference.

Meet teens that have developed great programs and projects that are working in their communities.  Feel their excitement and get engaged—teach, learn and share projects.  Get recognized by nominating your group, project and/or outstanding individuals in the NSSP Awards Program and win awards for your outstanding efforts.  Keep doing the right thing by helping peers make the right choices and educating others with your knowledge. 

Value and challenge yourself--push your potential to the limit.  The conference will motivate you to create, develop and implement prevention programs.  Make new friends and build your own network of resources.  Exercise and strengthen your leadership skills.

The conference agenda will get you to actively participate in a fun and exciting way.  Hear keynote speakers, experts and student presenters.  Enjoy small group discussions, icebreakers and energizers.  Enjoy the opening social event, awards and celebration event.  Make new friends and be inspired!

Registration
Attending the four-day conference is only $300, which includes four meals.  (Hotel lodging is not included.)  Go to the NSSP website at www.adtsea.org and download the registration forms, the NSSP Student Handbook and the NSSP Awards Program information.   Early registration deadline is June 1, 2018.  Special one-day conference rate of $100 is available for teens from Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri, Kansas, Indiana, Tennessee, and Kentucky.

Call for Workshops
NSSP showcases students and their projects that aim at safety.  These include highway safety topics (seat belts, pedestrian, bicycles, impaired driving, distracted driving, speeding, graduated driver’s licensing, etc.), leadership skill building, and peer prevention topics (suicide, pregnancies, HIV, drug/alcohol use, eating disorders, conflict resolution, etc.) It is
highly desirable that the presentations be interactive.  Presenters must be students.  The deadline to submit workshop proposals to ADTSEA is May 1, 2018.  Go to www.adtsea.org  and download the NSSP Call for Proposals Form.
