Young people from Community Action Youth Programs and Greenfield Youth Services organized a "Sticker Shock" campaign in collaboration with area alcohol vendors. The young people designed stickers with messages encouraging adults to help prevent underage drinking. Then, with the permission of store owners and managers, the young people affixed the stickers to beer and wine on sale in local stores. The seven vendors involved supported the campaign, and requested additional permanent signage for in-store displays and refrigerator doors.
