The First Annual Underage Drinking Forum
Stand United and We Can Change the World Sponsored by Shalom, Inc. Funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board
The first annual Underage Drinking Forum, was held on April 5, 2014 at Roman Catholic High School. The day was planned and facilitated by members of the Students Against Destructive Decisions group of Roman Catholic High School. Students from grades 6, 7, and 8 from various schools who participated in the Project Alert program throughout the year attended the event. Following a video, students engaged in discussions on issues and consequences surrounding underage drinking. Throughout the day, students participated in activities that included strength-building, coping with peer pressure, and healthy decision making.
The highlights of the day included Shots, a basketball game where the students wore goggles that simulated vision impaired by alcohol. Students showcased their acting talents by putting on skits which demonstrated how they would make healthy choices and resist the pressure to underage drink. The winners of the Project Alert poster contest held previously in the year, were acknowledged and showcased. Students reported a successful day that was fun. They enjoyed being in the company of the SADD group, and learned many helpful skills and tips. It was a wonderful day, and a great start to a yearly event.
