Maze teaches important lessons

Colquitt County High School students got a life-size experience on real-life choices and consequences Thursday.

The third annual Teen Maze kicked off at C.A. Gray Junior High School in Moultrie.

Each ninth grade student was given several scenarios where big decisions had to be made like alcohol use, abstinence and careers.

Organizers say the event appears to be an effective activity for students.

"They all think that they're 10 foot tall and bullet proof. For the first time they have to look at their immortality and they have to realize that it's not just about their parents. It's not just about who they are in the community. It's about decisions," said Katrina Bivins, Chairman for Teen Maze

More students will be able to participate in Teen Maze Friday morning at 8:00.
