Local Students Working Against Tobacco Continue to Make an Impact in Indian River County!
May 17, 2015

Congratulations to all Students Working Against Tobacco for increasing membership and activities this year!

SWAT kept busy speaking to legislators, writing letters, recruiting new members, seeking community speakers, and selecting officers and grade level representatives.

SWAT developed their own presentation pointing out how student advocacy, actions, and activities can help uncover the truth about tobacco and save their generation from a life of addiction.

SWAT youth were engaged learning about the effects of tobacco use from community speakers. They made posters thanking tobacco free businesses like CVS, Indian River Medical Center, Treasure Coast Community Health, Panera’s, Chive, and Starbucks.

SWAT planned and participated in Homecoming Parade, Sheriff’s Bar B Q, Red Ribbon Week, Not A Replacement Campaign, Kick Butts Day, Better Decisions Week, a Tobacco Free Business Appreciation Walk and Relay for Life.

SWAT members had fun this year actively spreading the truth about tobacco!
