Clay County Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) Chapter Prepares for Another Big School Year!

September 1, 2019

Welcome Back!  As the 2019-2020 school years begins, we are very excited about the Big Plans our Clay County Students Working Against Tobacco Chapter has in the works.

With the current e-cigarette epidemic with youth, it is imperative now more than ever that students use this platform to inform, support, and fight back for their generation’s health.

This year there are 10 amazing SWAT clubs located across Clay County.  Their main goal is to educate and spread awareness about the dangers of tobacco use and nicotine addiction.  Many of these clubs have already held recruitment activities to bring in new members to join this mission.

Each club will host activities to promote, “Not a Lab Rat Day (October 16th), Red Ribbon Week (October 24-31), Great American Smoke out (November 21), Through with Chew Week (February 16-21), and World No Tobacco Day (May 31).  These opportunities allow each Students Working Against Tobacco Club to engage their peers and school personnel with emerging tobacco trends, while also educating them on the dangers of tobacco use.  Read More
