Ward Melville High School’s SADD club, advised by Alison Herrschaft and Michelle Walker, continues to find ways to prevent poor decision-making through activism and education for youth and community.

This year the club designed a sticker for a “Sticker Shock” campaign, targeting the purchase and sale of alcohol to minors. The chosen sticker was selected and printed with the support of the Drug Prevention Coalition of the Town of Brookhaven. The goal of the campaign is to spread awareness of a critical community issue by placing the stickers designed by the students on alcohol products, pizza boxes or other store products to remind businesses and customers not to sell or purchase alcohol for minors.

On Wednesday, June 9, members of the club facilitated the Sticker Shock campaign with two local businesses. Setauket Pasteria and 7-11, on the corner of Old Town Road and Route 347, both participated and allowed the SADD club students inside their businesses to cover any alcohol product with their stickers. Over 500 stickers were placed on items within the store to promote awareness and prevention of this critical issue.
