The Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) Club at Fleming Island High School hosted a poster contest to bring awareness to Tobacco Free Florida Week and the dangers associated with using tobacco products.
This contest was open to all students at Fleming Island High School and a $50.00 gift card was awarded to the student with the winning poster. The students were asked to portray dangers of tobacco use or why it’s important to be tobacco free.
There were seven entries from students ranging from 9th-12th grade. The winning poster portrayed the damaging affects of tobacco use over time and the darkness associated with nicotine addiction. The message, “Smoking isn’t Worth It” signifies what this student felt is the best way to challenge his fellow peers about remaining tobacco free.
Great job, Fleming Island Students Working Against Tobacco for continuing to think outside the box in getting campus wide involvement and bringing students together to fight against Big Tobacco.
