BABYLON, N.Y. – Before the April 12th, 2022, General Meeting of the Suffolk County Legislature, a small ceremony was held to recognize the winners of the Annual Bicycle Safety Poster/Video Contest for Suffolk County Schools. The contest, established in 2021, serves as a public education campaign to spread awareness and educate youth on the importance of bicycle safety to reduce the potential for serious accidents.

“It gives me great pleasure to announce a winner of the Bicycle Safety Program Poster Contest from the 14th Legislative District” said Presiding Officer McCaffrey as he introduced Isabel Focarile, a second grader at Babylon Grade School, and her parents to the Suffolk County Legislature as the 2nd Place Winner of the Bicycle Safety Poster contest. “Isabel’s artwork stood above that of other countywide contest participants and shows her understanding of the dangers faced by all bicycle riders here in Suffolk County, young and old. Her work reinforces Suffolk County’s public education campaign to increase awareness and demonstrates bicycle safety very well.

It is important that our art teachers participate in these contests to help bring the message of bicycle safety to our elementary school children. I would like to thank Ms. Elizabeth Losito who, each year has a number of students participating in the program and learning the important message behind the posters. Congratulations Isabel, on being this year’s winner of the Suffolk County Bicycle Safety Poster Contest.”

The following day, Presiding Officer McCaffrey visited the Babylon Memorial Grade School to meet with Ms. Elizabeth Losito and the rest of her students who participated in the contest, each of which was given a certificate from the Presiding Officer thanking them for helping to raise awareness of bicycle safety within Suffolk County.  

Legislator Kevin McCaffrey represents Suffolk County's 14th Legislative District, which encompasses the Villages of Lindenhurst and Babylon, the hamlets of West Babylon and North Lindenhurst, portions of Copiague, North Babylon, and Babylon's barrier beach communities.
