2020 STICKER SHOCK CONTEST

Carver Cares and the Caring Crusaders invite YOU to participate in our Sticker Shock

Contest that aims to address underage drinking.

As a way for students to get involved, we are looking for YOUR creativity to design a

sticker to be posted on coolers in local liquor store establishments. The goal of these

stickers is to prevent adults from buying alcohol for minors.

All design submissions will be voted upon and the winning sticker will be used in the

2020 Campaign. The designer of the winning sticker will also receive a prize.

In the Spring of 2020, the Caring Crusaders will work closely with Carver Cares, the

town’s substance use prevention coalition, to roll out the campaign. Those interested in

helping to disseminate the stickers to participating liquor stores should contact Merielle

Paul at paulm@carver.org.

What is the criteria for the stickers’ design?

● Stickers should include a positive message.

○ For example, a positive message may be: “Make the right choice. For you

and for them. Don’t buy alcohol for minors.”

○ A negative message, for example, may be: “Underage drinking kills. Don’t

buy for minors.”


● Include Penalties for buying alcohol for minors.

○ Up to one year in jail and/ or $2,000 in fines

● Include the Carver Cares and/or Caring Crusader logo.

○ Please contact Merielle at paulm@carver.org for logos.

● The sticker can be no larger than 5x5 in size.

● Design must be submitted electronically. You may use graphic design software

tools to create the sticker. Ex: Canva, Publisher, InDesign.

Designs must be submitted via email to paulm@carver.org no later than


Friday, January 31, 2020.
