Anne Arundel County Department of Health Encourages Parents to Speak to Graduating High School Seniors About Alcohol Use
Anne Arundel County Department of Health encourages graduating high school seniors to participate in events that are safe and alcohol-free. Parents are encouraged to speak to their graduating seniors concerning the dangers of underage drinking, including the health, family and legal consequences of use. Each year, the Play It Safe project, a nationally-recognized drug and alcohol misuse prevention program, has activities for graduates who celebrate the end of high school in Ocean City, Maryland. This project includes public awareness, education and alternative activities for the purpose of encouraging youth to make safe and responsible choices during the celebration of this exciting milestone in their lives. Some of the alcohol-free events held in Ocean City during senior week include karaoke, kayaking, laser tag, 3-on-3 basketball tournaments, beach volleyball, miniature golf and a scavenger hunt.
