A Fair Fight Against Underage Drinking

On Saturday, July 17, the Wood County Educational Service Center participated in Bradner Day in the Park.  

The Wood County Educational Service Center had a booth at the event to survey attendees on their perception of underage drinking in Wood County.  The surveys were conducted by the Communities Mobilizing for Change on Alcohol Street Team. This team is comprised of teen leaders from Wood County schools who are promoting the media campaign, The New Cool. This campaign, which will go into full swing with the beginning of the school year, is designed to engage youth to make positive choices as alternatives to underage drinking.

Fun giveaways and coloring pages were also part of this booth that had lots of participation from Wood County children, teens and adults throughout the day.

The New Cool Street Team will also have  a booth at the Wood County and Pemberville fairs, both in August.
