Project Sticker Shock
Project Sticker Shock is a youth-implemented activity that aims to reduce underage drinking by limiting youth access to alcohol. Typically done in the fall and spring, teens place stickers on multi-packs of beer, wine coolers, and other alcoholic beverages at participating local stores. The sticker warns that it is illegal to provide alcohol to minors.
