Teens stuck on public awareness

ADDISON COUNTY — Groups of students from Mount Abraham and Vergennes union high schools took part in a recent “Sticker Shock” day around the county.
The purpose of Sticker Shock is to reinforce public awareness about the minimum drinking age law by placing stickers on packs of beer larger than a six-pack. The goal of this project is to discourage adults and older peers (those who are 21 or over) from providing alcohol to minors.
The campaign consisted of teams of young people, accompanied by an adult chaperone, placing stickers on packs of alcoholic beverages at participating stores. The stickers read: “Providing Alcohol To Minors is ILLEGAL. Fines are up to $10,000 and/or up to five years in jail. Supported by: Project Sticker Shock Addison County START, Addison County Prevention Partnership, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes, VUHS, MAUHS, and Vergennes Police Department.”
The Vergennes High School Assets group visited Vergennes-area stores on April 18: Shaw’s in Vergennes, Kinney Drugs, Champlain Farms, Vergennes Redemption Store, Vermont Energy, Ferrisburgh Mobil, Small City Market, Addison Four Corner Store and West Addison General Store. Students participating were Rachel Clark, Mary Flood, Felicia Cornet and Emily Delgadillo.
The Mount Abraham High School Vermont Teen Leadership Safety Program (VTLSP) visited Bristol-area stores on April 16: Shaw’s in Bristol, Bristol Beverage, Champlain Farms, Maplefield’s in Bristol and Jiffy Mart and the Village Store in New Haven. Students participating were Makayla Ouellette, Jordan Cota, Mercedez Shackett, and Marie Arena.
