The Green Lake High School chapter of Students Against Destructive Decisions has launched a springtime campaign to improve behind-the-wheel behavior of teenage drivers.

Help us spread the message that Death Is a Life Sentence by making our campaign motto your Facebook profile image! Consider it a pledge – to yourself, to your friends, to the innocent bystander who all too often is the victim of teen-related car crashes – and commit to driving responsibly. Did you know nearly two out of every three people killed in teen-driver crashes are people other than the driver? Human error causes destructive driving accidents. Do the research, know the facts and drive smart.
You can help too! Make a commitment to yourself, to your friends, to the young adults in your own life, and demonstrate responsible driving behavior. Join us in promoting this important topic by talking with teenage drivers in your life. Make the Death is a Life Sentence image your own Facebook profile and show your support and commitment to being a positive role model when it comes to practicing safe driving habits. Spend time with the young adults in your life to research and understand the driving risk.

To help schools across the state get this message in front of teens, the Green Lake’s SADD Chapter has put together a “Death is a Life Sentence” campaign package that area schools can purchase and implement. The campaign package includes 150 promotional items (car static stickers, car air fresheners), three countertop message boards, a list of school activities, a press release for their local media as well as a link back to the “Life After Death” video.
The cost of the Death is a Life Sentence promotional package is $15.00 and can be ordered by filling this order form:
