Project Sticker Shock Aims to Reduce Underage Drinking During Homecoming

Prior to Stockbridge High School’s Homecoming, SRSLY once again went out into the community for Project Sticker Shock.

Project Sticker Shock is a community awareness campaign designed to educate adults who might purchase alcohol and illegally provide it to minors. The project unites youth, business owners, parents, and law enforcement in a partnership to strive for a common goal: to reduce underage drinking.

On October 3rd, SRSLY youth went to seven Stockbridge-area business to put up bright green stickers and posters that state,

“It is illegal for any person 21 or older to purchase/provide alcohol to minors. Fines are up to $2,500 or 1 year in jail.”

These students put stickers on cases of beer and wine coolers, and offered them to staff to wear for the day. They also put up posters in store entryways to help increase awareness and demonstrate each business’s commitment to keeping alcohol out of the hands of minors.

Thank you to the following local businesses for helping keep Stockbridge youth safe during homecoming season:

  • M-52 Mart (BP Gas Station)
