LACONIA - You could call it a field trip of a different kind. Thursday students spent the day slapping stickers on alcohol at eight Laconia stores.
"It's pretty interesting. I've gone into two stores so far," said eighth grader Tony Collings.
The eye-catching labels, courtesy of students from Laconia Jobs for America's Graduates and a group called Stand Up Laconia, remind adults about the price they can pay for giving alcohol to anyone under 21.
The "Sticker Shock" project has gained momentum in New Hampshire.
"They do it on the Seacoast," said Officer Eric Adams of the Laconia Police Department. "They've done it down in the Southern part of the state. This is the first time we've ever done it here in Laconia."
"We have a drug and alcohol problem around our area, and it has personally affected me through friends and family," said Stand Up Laconia member Amy Beaudoin. "So we are trying to help our community."
On Thursday the group put more than a thousand stickers on boxes of alcohol for sale.
