Since 2012, Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD) Alberta, in partnership with the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC), has coordinated their Liquor Bag Campaign, whereby Alberta students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 can add their personal message about the dangers of impaired driving to a paper liquor bag. Once the students complete their messaging, an adult or teacher collects the bags and distributes them to local liquor stores for use with regular sales. This activity assists educators in continuing the conversation about the dangers of drinking and driving, and also involves members of the community.
There is no cost to the school or students. SADD Alberta has already received orders for over 60,000 bags from more than 250 schools including École Broxton Park School. Grade 8 student Madelyn Lux shared their story and did a great job representing her school and Parkland School Division when asked to join a representative from SADD on the CTV Morning Live breakfast show.
