EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

More than 1500 South Effingham High School students got a lesson in life consequences on Wednesday.

They participated in a teen maze, which is an interactive game that puts students in real world situations to show them the consequences of their decisions. They faced a variety of obstacles that can prevent or delay their graduation from high school such as drinking, drugs and sex. 

"Our main focus is our students are having prom this Saturday and we want things fresh in their minds," said Erin Woodcock, a school social worker.

"When we get to see them go through the scenarios, we do get to see the emotions they go through. you do get see how it impacts a kid and sometimes you see that it does have a real life effect and that they may have had a traumatic thing happen in their life and it does hit home with the kids," said Haley Clark SADD president.

School staff, medical staff from local hospitals, fire departments and sheriff's office volunteers participated in the exercise.
