The Smarter Choices Community Youth Coalition held a rally Friday to promote a new project.
It's called Project Sticker Shock. They'll be going into local stores over the next several weeks, placing stickers on wine and beer containers that say the minimum age to buy alcohol is 21.
Project Sticker Shock is a statewide campaign to try to help curb underage drinking.
Here are a few numbers to let you know how prevalent underage drinking is in Mississippi, according to a federal study.
72% Have Had at Least One Drink
28% Had First Drink Before 13
41% Have Drank in Last 30 Days
