Skyline Displays of New York, a company that can design a trade show display in New York, recently designed an exhibit for the Just Like Me project. The project empowers teens to make healthy decisions regarding drugs and addiction.
Online PR News – 09-May-2013 – HAUPPAUGE, NY – The statistics are startling -- 46 percent of all high school students are currently using some sort of addictive substance. What's even more frightening is that one third of these students meets the medical criteria for addiction.
To help fight this epidemic, Skyline Displays of New York, a company that can help businesses design a dynamic trade show display in New York, recently designed an exhibit to the Just Like Me project. The Just Like Me project is a peer-to-peer drug prevention program in Long Island and works to empower teenagers to make healthy decisions.
Skyline New York's exhibit depicted a dilapidated building. Students who entered the exhibit find a photo of a young addict, while a recording shares the addict's experience with drug addiction. The photo is seen through a two way mirror, which helps the teen see both the addict and themselves at the same time. The display highlights the devastation and despair felt by many addicts.
“We want to do our part to help stop the cycle of addiction by empowering kids to make better decisions. We are honored to contribute to the Just Like Me project and hope that it’s effects are seen throughout the local community” said Robert Watson, President of Skyline New York.
In addition to the sponsorship contribution, Skyline New York is currently running a promotion to contribute a percentage of its sales, referenced to the promotion, between now and the next Just Like Me fundraiser scheduled in Huntington, NY on June 10, 2013.
