Education and increasing awareness are essential to creating the first tobacco-free and nicotine-free generation. Most people don’t realize the negative impact tobacco and nicotine products have on our society and our health. So, we’ve created easily accessible resources that can be downloaded to help you educate your peers and community members about the harmful effects of tobacco use.
Say What! PowerPoints
These presentations were created by Say What! Teen Ambassadors, Consultants, and staff, and were presented during the 2019 Say What! Action Summit season and Teen Ambassador Sessions at the
2019 Say What! Tobacco-Free Conference.

The Dangers You Should Know
We want everyone to know about the harms of e-cigarette and tobacco use and the deceptive advertising techniques by Big Tobacco. With this presentation, your group will be able to educate classmates and community members to stay away from e-cigarettes and other tobacco products, and show students throughout Texas the importance of living a healthy tobacco-free life!
You already know tobacco is the number one preventable cause of death in the United States, but do you know why? Find out about the many ways tobacco products and secondhand smoke can impact your health, and discuss the impact that tobacco has had on pop-culture, movies, video games, and more.
Not a Flashdrive!
How Old is Tobacco?!
You’ve seen them at your school, in your community, and maybe even in your friend groups. E-cigarette and JUUL use are rising rapidly among youth. What are these products, what impact can they have on your health, and how are they marketing these products? Find out the facts about these products and learn how to address e-cigarettes and JUUL in your school.
You probably see tobacco products every day in your school and community, but where did these products come from? Why are people in your community even using them? Learn all about how tobacco products, ingredients, and advertising have changed throughout history, and how these harmful products ended up in the hands of family members and friends.
Say What! educational handouts are flyers and fact cards that discuss a variety of tobacco prevention topics including e-cigarettes. We’ve also included fun, educational activity sheets to help support your presentation efforts. You can download our handouts for any school or community project or as a leave behind when speaking to elected officials, school board members, school administrators, or community organizations and businesses!
Does your school know they are required to be tobacco and nicotine-free? The 84th Texas Legislative session amended the Texas Education Code to include
e-cigarettes in tobacco-free school policies. Help your school clearly communicate, enforce, and support a tobacco-free, e-cigarette free campus!
