Student Week of Awareness


Following HHS HOSA students week of awareness, the Taking Down Tobacco Team hosted a chapter wide balloon release to raise awareness against teen tobacco use. Other activities included tobacco statistics written on the school sidewalk and the classrooms, breathe clean mask day to raise awareness for 2nd hand smoke, cups on the football field fence to represent the 480,000 victims of tobacco-related deaths in the US annually and a presentation at the Chapman Health Fair. Members of the Taking Down Tobacco Team are Emma Bigham, Kiersten Kamholz and Jacelynne Griffith.

The following picture supported a nation-wide social media campaign in February called Through with Chew week. Participants posted pictures blowing bubbles or balloons as alternatives to smokeless tobacco.
