WARNING: An individual can face up to $3,000 in fines and one year in jail for providing alcohol to a person under the legal drinking age of 21.
What is the BUZZKILL campaign?
BUZZKILL is a county-wide awareness campaign with the sole purpose of reminding community members that it is illegal to provide alcohol to people under the legal drinking age of 21. Not only is it illegal, but you risk facing consequences that affect ones future and health.
We will highlight activities across Winona County that provide students with alternatives to binge drinking and provide adults with opportunities to help prevent negative consequences of underage drinking.
BUZZKILL launches April 16 and runs through June 2018. Everyone can get involved! Students, parents, community members. See what is available below and get involved!
- Parent Pledge
- Party Patrols
- After Prom Parties
- Sticker Shock
- Responsible Beverage Server Training
Parents, will you pledge to host only alcohol- and drug-free parties? Please sign the online Parent Pledge! We want to see hundreds of families promise to not allow students to consume alcohol and other drugs on their property.
Here are Party Planning Tips
During the BUZZKILL campaign we want people to be more vigilant of underage drinking so you can help prevent negative consequences from occurring such as a death of a friend or loved one. If you suspect someone is driving under the influence or hosting a house party, you can provide an anonymous tip online with the Winona Area Crime Stoppers or call 507-457-6530. You can earn $50 if your tip leads to an arrest through the FAST50 Program.
