Project Sticker Shock

Project Sticker Shock is a program utilized within Livingston County to reduce youth access to alcohol by educating adult providers. Stickers displaying a warning message about the penalties for furnishing alcohol to minors are placed on multipacks of beer and wine coolers in local alcohol retail establishments. Teens from around the county, including the youth-led prevention team and other teens participate in the event. The impact of the sticker is increased by local media coverage. Project Sticker Shock helps build relationships between youth, parents, community members, and retailers with the main goal of educating adults over 21 of the underage drinking laws and raising public awareness about underage drinking.
