About TIP the Scale

TIP the Scale is a communication campaign aimed at parents to stop underage drinking in Iroquois County. TIP stands for Talking Improves Parenting. Our goal is to encourage parents to do their part to help TIP the Scale to stop underage drinking in Iroquois County by:

  • talking to their teens about not drinking alcohol
  • letting their teens know that underage drinking is both illegal and harmful
  • and not providing alcohol for teens.
