Alcohol Awareness Activities

The JEL/YLC members have been active this month in reminding people of the dangers of underage drinking.

The students held a gear exchange at Van Buren on April 21st and 22nd where students were able to bring in appearal with an Alcohol message and trade it for gear with a Van Buren, Iowa State or Iowa Hawkeye Logo on it. Six shirts were exchanged during this event.

The students also placed a message in the fence with cups at a home track meet- see the photos. Stickers were placed on popcorn bags to reinforce the message that underage drinking is unacceptable and that April is Alcohol Awareness Month.

Students in the Harmony school hung posters with facts and information about the dangers of underage drinking.

The Van Buren students videoed a skit that was broadcast on channel one during seminar period.

All of the activities by the youth reinforce the message that the coalition wants to make loud and clear- that underage drinking in our county is unacceptable!

For more information on any of these events you may contact the SAFE Coalition at 319-293-6412
