BG schools support Parents Who Host campaign
Teen Institute at BGHS through the Wood County Educational Service Center’s School and Community-Based Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug (ATOD) prevention program is proud to be a part of the environmental awareness campaign, "Parents Who Host, Lose the Most."
Drug-Free Action Alliance has developed the "Parents Who Host, Lose The Most: Don't be a party to teenage drinking" public awareness campaign to provide parents with accurate information about the health risks of underage drinking and the legal consequences of providing alcohol to youth. The campaign encourages parents and the community to send a unified message at prom and graduation time that teen alcohol consumption is not acceptable. It is illegal, unsafe, and unhealthy for anyone under age 21 to drink alcohol.
