Self image stressed in 22nd annual Operation Snowflake event

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Local seventh graders got an early lesson on the dangers of drugs and alcohol Friday as a part of the 22nd annual Operation Snowflake.

More than 100 area students participated in four different workshops in Quincy. One of the topics they discussed was developing a self image.

Organizer Pam Foster says deciding if they want to stay clean or not is an important step for teens.

"The way your behave gives you a reputation," Foster said. "And so we want to make sure that the students are aware that they way you carry yourself has all to do with how you're going to be perceived by other people."

The other interactive workshops included cliques and stereotypes, substance abuse prevention games and Jeopardy.
