SAY WHaT! Action Summits

The 2021 Say What!
Summit season will be virtual!

This year, we are focusing on vaping prevention and we’re calling out the tobacco industry for all of their deceptive and manipulative strategies that have caused the youth vaping epidemic.

Say What! is hosting 5 different virtual summits, which will take a unique look at the dangers of vaping and its connection with COVID-19, how tobacco is a social justice issue, the tobacco industry’s marketing tactics, and how every youth in Texas can be the best advocate for vaping prevention. Summits are led by the Say What! Teen Ambassadors and will include experts who will provide their experiences in the field of medicine, social justice, youth advocacy, and public policy.

Each virtual Say What! Action Summit will include:

    • E-cigarette/vaping prevention education

    • Downloadable vaping prevention project for online or in-person setting

    • Peer-led education, activities, and networking

    • An opportunity to earn community service hours

    • A commemorative summit t-shirt and lanyard

    • An opportunity to win limited edition Say What! swag

 

We encourage everyone to take advantage of our virtual summits this year and attend all 5 summits. If you attend all 5 summits and complete all 5 projects, you’ll be automatically entered to win:

    1. A virtual Say What! party with all Teen Ambassadors and staff

    2. Exclusive Say What! swag

    3. Being featured in a Say What! video

    4. A member spotlight on TxSayWhat.com
