Health Media campaign

The Hood River Valley High School Health Media Club held its Fourth of July Sticker Shock Campaign to reduce youth access to alcohol on June 29.

The Health Media Club created a bilingual sticker message saying: “Celebrate independence not a Jail Sentence! Please do not drink and drive. Please do not share alcohol with minors.”

Alighery Jiminez was the Health Media Club leader, and she led a group of six Young Life students. Gabe Judah from Hood River Valley High School and Juan Zuniga from Young Life also facilitated the campaign. Hood River Alliance Church provided use of its van.
