'Sticker Shock' Campaign Reminds Consumers of Drinking Laws

COBB COUNTY, GA -- The Cobb Alcohol Taskforce Youth Council recently conducted a "Project Sticker Shock" at retail outlets in Acworth, Austell and Kennesaw.

Volunteers involved in the campaign visited local stores and covered beer cases, wine coolers and other products in 1,500 stickers that warn of the penalties for providing alcohol to anyone under age 21.

The stickers were distributed on a Sunday, when alcohol sales are prohibited, to avoid impacting business for the store owners who agreed to participate:

* Chevron (3453 Baker Road NW, Acworth, 30101)
* Citgo (3801 North Main Street, Acworth, 30101)
* Austell Food Store (3365 Austell Powder Springs Road, 30106)
* Joe's Bottle Shop (3034 Veterans Memorial Highway, Austell, 30106)
* Big Shanty Superette (2778 South Main Street, Kennesaw, 30144)

Sticker Shock is one of several movements that the council members decided to use after their Youth Council Summit in the fall.

Stephanie Kootsikas, Cobb Alcohol Taskforce member and MADD Youth Program Specialist, coordinated the event with assistance from Austell Police Deputy Chief Natalie Poulk and Kennesaw Police Officer Scott Luther.
