Project Sticker Shock


Volunteers Stick Shocking Reminders About the

Consequences of Providing Alcohol to Minors


Minimum penalty is $1,000 or a year in jail


Project Sticker Shock is a public awareness campaign that takes a stand against underage drinking by placing brightly colored stickers on multi-packs of beer, wine coolers, and other alcohol related products that appeal to underage drinkers.


The stickers have messages aimed at adults regarding compliance with underage drinking laws and MARPC organizes volunteers from several area agencies to help spread the word.


Each campaign attempts to label between six to ten thousand products and the campaigns are usually timed to coincide with community events that have historically had high rates of minor-in-possession citations.


Retail businesses that have allowed MARPC to label their products include:
