According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, approximately 1,000 children under the age 21 die each year in preventable tragedies while celebrating their high school proms and graduations. Therefore, efforts to prevent underage drinking, particularly at prom-graduation time, is critical.

On Tuesday, May 3rd, four students from Clarion Limestone High School participated in the Project Sticker Shock campaign at River Hill Beverage, Shippenville. 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 state warnings about the penalties for furnishing alcohol to minors.
