Sticker Shock Campaign

This vital campaign is led by teenagers and adult volunteers and is funded by Community Trials Intervention (CTI) to Reduce High Risk Drinking in Warren County. Twice yearly (April and November) this coalition places high-impact stickers displaying the legal consequences of purchasing and providing alcohol to minors. With the support of retailers, warning stickers will be placed on multi-packs of beer, wine coolers, hard lemonades and other “alcopops” known to appeal to minors.  In addition to the stickers, stores also place prominent signs in their windows.
