Fulda High School sophomores, Taylor Kenney and Marissa Kunerth, were invited to attend the 2013 Lifesavers Conference, which was held in Denver, Colorado, Sunday through Tuesday, April 14-16th.

The Lifesavers Conference is a premier national highway safety meeting, which is dedicated to reducing the tragic toll of deaths and injuries on our nation's roadways. Those who attend address pressing highway safety challenges and learn about safety measures that have been proven to work.

The two Fulda teens were invited to attend the conference by the National Organization for Youth Safety (NOYS) and Act Out Loud - two organizations that they have been working with through Fulda's FCCLA for the past three years.

Kenney and Kunerth participated in the Teen Distracted Driving Summit held in Washington, DC, in November last year. More than 100 teens from throughout the nation attended the three-day event, which included presentations, interactive activities, and training sessions on how to combat distracted driving. From that event, three teams of teens were chosen to attend the 2013 Lifesavers Conference and present the work that they have been doing regarding distracted driving.

On Sunday of the Lifesaver's Conference, Kenney and Kunerth met with three executives of NOYS and Act Out Loud and then set up the booth that they manned during the conference.

At 12:30 p.m. on Monday, they spoke in front of a group of 250 adults regarding their three-year span of activities to help prevent distracted driving.
