Lindy Middle School Coalition votes for the annual pizza box sticker contest
The voting began today. In just two short weeks, on February 25th, we will know the name of the 2020 winner of the Middle School Pizza Box Sticker Campaign. Each year the middle school coalition chooses a sticker with a message that they believe will benefit all the residents of Lindenhurst. This year’s prevention message is about using a vape device for nicotine. Sharing the message of prevention has proved to be very effective in Lindy. According to survey data, the increase in the amount of Lindy students who reported vaping in the last 30 days since 2015 is far below the national level of students who have taken to using vape devices to inhale nicotine and THC. Lindy Cares Youth Coalition sounded the alarm to this dangerous trend long before it became a national awareness campaign.
3000 stickers will be placed on take-out bags and pizza boxes in collaboration with local business owners in a strong show of support for youth who choose to live drug and alcohol-free.
Lindy Cares residents and members believe that kids should be allowed to be kids and businesses know that enforcing laws to ensure that youth do not have access to addictive substances like alcohol and tobacco before their brains fully develop have a better shot at avoiding the disease of addiction.
Lindy Cares youth strive to create an environment in which they believe they can thrive and all efforts are made to optimize performance in academics and athletics providing a support system giving every student a chance to achieve their dreams and reach their highest potential.
