Intelli-Check Inc., a developer of document verification systems for convenience store and petroleum marketers, said it would be a category exclusive sponsor of a nationwide multimedia school assembly program to be launched by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).
The "Fake ID" show will encourage middle and high school students to resist negative peer pressure and make good decisions for themselves, including abstaining from alcohol until age 21.
Intelli-Check said that it will contribute to the funding of MADD's "Fake ID" assembly show, to be launched in August, which will target 1.2 million pupils in at least 2,000 middle and senior high schools. The campaign is part of MADD's new School Assembly Program for the 2001-2002 school year.
"We applaud the initiative that Intelli-Check, the leader in age verification systems, is taking in MADD's efforts to combat underage drinking and are delighted that the company is contributing to our campaign to increase awareness about the dangers of underage drinking and the consequences of bad choices," said Millie Webb, national president of MADD.
Intelli-Check CEO and Chairman Frank Mandelbaum said fake identification cards are a growing problem as they become more accessible. "There is a proliferation of Internet sites where young people can obtain fake identification cards that often are used for the purchase of age-restricted products such as alcohol and tobacco."
