On Sunday, the Youth Advisory Council (YAC) along with Healthy Choices Caring Communities (HC3), are thrilled to report that the popular 5th quarter event #StompingGrounds is returning to the Fulton County Fair.
Stomping Grounds will feature a fun and friendly place for middle school students to hang out. Bring your friends and make new ones while you enjoy sno-cones, snacks and games. Students can win prizes in the corn hole tournament, join the water balloon toss, play dodge ball, Pictionary, four square, and many other activities.
Rayne Kinsman, who was recognized earlier this year as HC3’s Youth Coalition Champion for her work in publicizing last year’s Stomping Grounds event, shares, “I really love Stomping Grounds because you get to hang out with your friends and have fun and there’s lots of really fun games.”
From 7-8:30 p.m., it will be Stomping Grounds – Fulton County Fair style, in the small sale arena. This free youth event is open to all Fulton County Middle School Students (5th – 8th grade). HC3 and YAC are very thankful for all of the outstanding community partners who have helped to make this event a success!
All sixth to eighth grade students are also encouraged to wear #Talk2Me school spirit shirts and enter a drawing to win a gift card. #Talk2Me is a social norms campaign, developed in partnership with HC3, YAC and the Fulton County Prosecutor’s Office. This campaign is designed to bring attention to the tremendous influence Fulton County parents have over their children when it comes to decisions about substance use. These #Talk2Me shirts are a reminder for parents to speak to their children about the dangers of substance use and “Use Your Impact!”
