BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Gov. Livingston High School Student Ambassadors and TREND Clubs took the lead role an Alcohol Awareness Campaign called “Sticker Shock”.
Members of the Student Ambassadors and TREND Clubs met with Prevention Links and were asked to come up with a sticker design that would inform adults not to serve alcohol to minors.
GL students in the Graphic Design classes were challenged with the task to come up with a design and message. The competition brought a lot interest as several students came up with awesome designs. The entries were posted in school for their fellow students to vote on.
The Winning sticker was Senior, Maddy Forrester. Prevention Links then ordered several thousand stickers. On Thursday, June 8, 2017, GLHS students were accompanied by Detective Shaun Bendik of the Mountainside Police Department and Officer Ed Gaffney of the Berkeley Heights Police Department to their respective liquor stores and the stickers were placed on alcohol packaged goods.
Maddy’s sticker featured a red Stop Sign shape, with a cartoon policeman in the middle, holding his hand up to Stop. The message highlighted the NJ State Statue 2C:33-17; “Serving alcohol to minors is up to a $1,000 in fines and 6 months in jail”
The Student Ambassadors Club is run by Mrs. Michelle Morin, GLHS Counselor, and the TREND Club is run by Mr. Bob Segear, the Student Assistant Counselor.
The Sticker Shock Program is funded by the Municipal Alliances in Berkeley Heights and in Mountainside and is part of an ongoing educational and awareness campaign by the Governor Livingston High School TREND Club to promote living a drug and alcohol free life style for their peers.
