Meet The Paq

Gus, Leon, Jade & Arnold

Visiting from the planet Clarus Tellus, these Paquarians have come to help youth reduce tobacco use and educate everyone on the harmful effects of tobacco and secondhand smoke. They might look cute and cuddly, but they’re serious about making Texas tobacco-free!



Say What! was created by young people from across Texas and connects students and adults interested in eliminating tobacco from their schools and communities.

Why Tobacco Prevention:

Stand Up for what you believe in and promote the real story behind youth and tobacco use.
Speak Up for the truth about tobacco use at the local level through advocacy activities in your community.
Be Tobacco-Free, lead by example, and ensure the health of others by working on policy-related activities at the local and statewide level.
