The Sticker Shock Project is designed to reach adults who might purchase alcohol legally and provide it to minors. Sticker warnings about the penalties for furnishing alcohol to minors are placed on all multi-packs of beer, alco-pops, and other alcohol products that might appeal to underage drinkers. The impact of the stickers is increased by media coverage of the event and by the signs that are displayed by participating retailers.
The real impact of the Sticker Shock project is that once the alcohol is stickered, of age people purchasing alcohol will think twice about providing alcohol to minors. This project also raises awareness of constructing laws on a larger scale, particularly through media coverage of your activities.
Instead of just raising awareness of selling alcohol to underage persons, it encourages youth to take the lead whenever possible.
Why Participate in Project Sticker Shock?
• Raises public awareness about underage drinking and youth access to alcohol.
• Builds collaboration between youth, retailers, concerned parents, community members, law enforcement, and prevention professionals.
• Strengthens the deterrent effect of law against providing alcohol to minors.
• Generates positive media coverage, including newspaper articles/editorials, and new stories.
What is the community’s role?
- We will need volunteers for the Teen Maze from different areas including law enforcement, treatment facilities, EMT and health care workers, counselors and psychologists, judges, lawyers, and university students.
- A wonderful opportunity for our community to interact with the youth of Bulloch County.
What is the Teen Maze?
- Teen Maze is a unique, interactive learning experience.
- Allows teens to go through life lessons in a practical, safe environment.
- Each student will visit stations that include scenarios on: underage drinking, drug use, risky sexual behavior, bullying or successfully graduating from high school.
- Students will be able to “experience” the consequences of good or poor decision making with real life examples.
- Students will learn to set and enforce boundaries.
- Students will learn to resist negative pressures.
- Students will learn to make wise decisions to protect their future.
