When I was in 10th grade we did a project for FCCLA. (family community leaders of America) It had a lot to do with drinking & driving. I don't know how much time you have but we did this for a whole year. We passed out surveys that asked questions like do you wear your seat belt? Asking questions about drinking etc. (it had to be approved by the school board that is what took forever) It showed our students how many kids alcohol really effects. We also hung pix all threw the school of teens that were killed by drunk drivers. Most were their friends. Check SADD.com and MADD.com. I think the stat in 2004 was some one is killed every 3 or 4 mins. Then we did how many people were killed just in a school day & hung that many little people up in the main hall way. We also got all of the club to sign up, we painted peoples faces white. That meant they were killed. They couldn't talk (unless it was in class a question to the teacher) It was like they were dead. They had to sit together at lunch. Like their chair at their regular lunch table was empty. So it was like they were gone. We also sent out info saying how to talk to your parents or a family member if you need a ride after drinking. And info to parents about what to do if you get that call. SADD and MADD.com have a ton of great ideas. Check those sites out we use them a lot in our projects. As for pledge badges maybe something alone the lines pledge saying I will not drink on prom night. I will not drink and drive on prom night. And then give 3 people in their lives why they wouldn't do it. (mom grandma brother) And why, those people love me so much etc. Also see if you can find some one who has a DUI or look up what a DUI will do to ya besides risking some one death. (lost of drivers lic till 21, how much in fines, besides what parents will do to ya) I lost my cousin in 2003 to a 17 year old drunk driver. He left a party that parents broke up and crossed the center line. Hitting my aunt uncle my 6 year old cousin and my year old cousin. My aunt almost lost her leg and arm, now still has alot of pain. My 6 year old cousin was killed. It was the hardest moment of my life. I would be glad to write how it felt and send you his pic if that would help! Good Luck....I wish more students would do projects like this!
If you are found not under the influence you wont get in trouble. But open alcohol is your responsibility you are the driver. Underage passengers will get a ticket for underage drinking.
My school did something quite interesting. We get surveys for the schools newspaper and we got one asking who drank in the last week who drank in the last month and never they were anonymous. Our schools SADD (students against drunk driving) class posted the percent number of studemnts in our school who drink prom night. (one of the questions) it was over 50 % the number was all around until the day before prom it started a comotion and nobody knew what it was about. that day students were pulled outta class by "death" students dressed up in grim reaped costumes. we were taken to the auditorium where the 50 some percent were shown on stage. then a movie was presented it included that jackie girl from venezula who was a victim it was touching.
They do the exact same thing in the UK, at least you deport them! Over here a drunk illegal who had already been deported twice snuck back in, was driving without a licence, drunk & speeding, smashed into an elderly couple, killed them both, run away from the scene then tried to blame them when he was caught, happens daily, and they get like 2 or 3 years prison, its terrible
Make them with shrinky dink paper. You can get it at a crafts store like Michaels. Glue a pin to the back of them. Maybe a booze bottle with slash through it, something simple. http://www.klutz.com/catalog/product/275...
Being drunk is no excuse to act irresponsibly. I've been drunk before and even then I knew that it would be a dumb idea to drive while intoxicated and I've never done it; alcohol is used many times as the whipping boy for people who refuse to take responsibility for the stupidities they do.
