SRSLY completed another round of Project Sticker Shock this December, aiming to keep alcohol out of the hands of minors over Winter Break.
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.
Mrs. McCalla’s second trimester Leadership Class at Beach Middle School volunteered their time to do all of the stickering before Winter Break. They put up stickers 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. SRSLYchelsea.org”
Students put dozens of these stickers on cases of beer and wine coolers that are for sale in stores and restaurants. They also put up posters to help increase awareness and demonstrate each business’s commitment to keeping alcohol out of the hands of minors.
Thank you to the following businesses for helping keep Chelsea youth safe during Winter Break:
- Polly’s Country Market
- New Chelsea Market
- Eastside Convenience
- Stiver’s Restaurant
- The Chelsea Grille
- Chelsea Lanes
SRSLY conducts Project Sticker Shock two more times during the school year: before Homecoming in the fall and before Prom in the spring.
Thank you to the Leadership Class and to everyone who participated!
