Mundelein, Ill. (AP) -- The Illinois Liquor Control
Commission has started a new underage drinking awareness program.
The program was announced Thursday at a
ceremony in the Chicago suburb of Mundelein. It's called "Your Actions Matter!"
Officials say the state asked teenagers to create a logo and slogan for the new
public awareness campaign. The winners were 15-year-old Ally Pennington from Fairfield Community
High School in Wayne County
and the Illinois Students Against Destructive Decisions Student Advisory Board.
Liquor Control Commission Executive
Director Gloria Materre says the goal is to reach adults "who think it is
acceptable to give alcohol to minors." Retailers across Illinois will participate by displaying
decals, drink coasters, posters and signs that promote the program.
