Great American Smokeout Celebrated in Keystone Heights High School
November 21, 2013

Keystone Heights - Members of the Keystone Heights High School Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) Club celebrated the American Cancer Society’s Annual Great American Smokeout on November 21, 2013.

Activities included creating a “CSI” mystery crime scene in their front office, banners and posters that discouraged students from using tobacco, a “birthday party” centerpiece in the staff lounge and numerous tobacco facts announced through the day.

SWAT members also encouraged tobacco users to quit for the day.  “Making the posters and banners was a lot of fun,” says SWAT member Ann Roberts. “It didn’t take very long to create and it was a unique way to show other students what we do as a SWAT club.”

With the success of these activities, the Keystone Heights High School SWAT Club decided to plan a similar campaign for the Great American Spit Out that occurs in February.
