Kick Butts Day 2017

Kick Butts Day encourages youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against the tobacco industry. This year Williston-Elko participated in the “Airing out Tobacco’s Dirty Laundry” campaign. The Youth Advisory Council/ HYPE group wrote statistics related to youth’s tobacco use on t-shirts as well as quotes from the tobacco industry CEO’s admitting to targeting youth through advertisements. In addition, the teens took part in an activity called “I am not a replacement”; this campaign is a rebuttal to the tobacco industry’s statement they need 2 teen replacements for every adult that dies from a tobacco related illness.
