GET CONNECTED

Do you want to have an incredible experience meeting new people, learning new tobacco prevention information, and taking a project back to your school or community that will make a difference and change people’s lives?

 

The Say What! Texas Tobacco-Free Conference is different from any youth leadership conference you’ve ever attended! You’ll participate in keynotes and workshops led by youth, listen to motivational speakers from across the country, and receive training from national organizations focused on youth advocacy.

 

DO SOMETHING

Held in conjunction with National Kick Butts Day, which is organized by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Texas Tobacco-Free Kids Day (TTFKD) is an annual awareness day in Texas that encourages youth of all ages to live tobacco-free lifestyles.

 

In addition to promoting Texas Tobacco-Free Kids Day in conjunction with National Kick Butts Day, Say What! also promotes World No Tobacco Day, Red Ribbon Week, and the Great American Smokeout which focuses on quitting smoking.
