Mariah's Challenge and Students In Virginia Share Resources1/12/2012
A senior health class from Cleary Mountain Union Free School District in Virginia presented a research paper to the entire student body using resources from the Mariah's Challenge website. As a "thank you", the class offered to share six additional resources that they found helpful. These resources along with the associated links are listed below and have been added to our website.
Our new Mariah's Messengers stated that they are passionate about spreading knowledge that may save a life.
Leo McCarthy applauds these individuals and stated,"I am humbled and so proud of each and everyone of these students for their enormous undertaking in standing out and helping others choose life."
Mariah's Challenge congradulates the class on a job well done!
Some teens think that impaired driving is different than drunk driving. The Anit Drug resource page gives a great rundown of how anything, be it drugs or alcohol, if it impairs your driving you should not be driving. It is extremely important for teens and other young adults to understand the impacts that impaired driving could have on them and others
The Drink-A-Ware site overall was very informative about drinking and health. The resources about drunk driving were very informative about staying under the limit, alcohol and its affect on driving, and staying safe. If everyone took the time to ensure their safety before they start drinking it may help to stop drunk driving.
The alcohol information center was a very informative guide that discussed the harms of excessive drinking, its affects on family, alcohol and health, and the law. All are very important to understand in order to prevent harm or worse to an individual or their loved ones. College students especially should understand the affects of binge drinking, underage drinking, drinking and driving.
The impaired driving resource page had very useful statistics that should scare anyone into never driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Alcohol misuse and driving can result in injury and even death.
The car resource guide for teen driving is very helpful for teens starting to drive or even newly on the road. Teens need the knowledge about the rules of the road, car maintenance and safety. Teens are new to the road and need to drive without any type of distraction that includes drugs, alcohol, changing the radio, or cell phone use. Parents can also use this resource page to educate their young drivers about state laws and what it takes to get a license.
The National Highway Traffic Safety resource page is a great guide for safety and a gateway to organizations. People seeking more information or perhaps support for a loved one may benefit from the list of law enforcement, and advocacy organizations. The NHTSA collaborates with organizations to spread awareness about drunk driving and zero tolerance. This is very important for educating today's youth about impaired driving.
