sticker-shockCLARION, Pa. (EYT) – Earlier this month, eight Clarion County Youth Council members from Keystone High School participated in the Project Sticker Shock campaign at River Hill Beverage.

Front Row: Chloe Bowser (12th), Allie Bearfield (12th), Jessica Cotton (11th), Paige Henry (10th), Jill Northey (AICDAC).

Project Sticker Shock is designed to limit youth under 21 accessing alcohol.  Students place stickers on cases of alcohol which is intended to reach adults who might purchase alcohol legally and then provide it to minors. The stickers warn about the penalties for furnishing alcohol to minors.

The event was sponsored by the Armstrong-Indiana-Clarion Drug and Alcohol Commission.

“During the month of October, many high school students are getting ready for homecoming and football games,” said the Commission in a press release. “This is also a risky time of year when teenagers may take part in underage drinking.”

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, approximately 1,000 children under the age of 21 die each year in preventable tragedies while celebrating their high school events.

“Efforts to prevent underage drinking, particularly at homecoming time, is critical.”

“The Commission would like to acknowledge and thank Clarion County Sheriff’s Department and River Hill Beverage for their cooperation in helping to limit underage drinking.”
