BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Students from TREND and Student Ambassadors completed their annual Sticker Shock Program on Wednesday, by visiting a local liquor store in Berkeley Heights, to put stickers on packaged goods that remind legal age adults, not to provide alcohol to minors.
The program was introduced to the students in January 2019. Students were asked to create a sticker, to bring awareness to serving alcohol to under age minors. Each sticker entry had to list the New Jersey Law 2C:33-17 and penalty, up to $1,000 fine and 6 months in jail and then the students could personalize it.
With the help of Gerri Morh’s Graphic Design classes, there were over 50 student entries. The students then voted on their favorite sticker. Naomi Brogden created the winning sticker was given a gift card. Her sticker then was printed up and yesterday our students placed the sticker onto package goods.
The Sticker Shock Program is funded by the Berkeley Heights Municipal Alliance, in cooperation with Prevention Links, who are the Alcohol and Drug Resource Center for Union County.
The Governor Livingston High School TREND Club is run by Student Assistance Counselor, Mr. Bob Segear and the Student Ambassadors are run by Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Michelle Morin.
