Morgan Wittman of Durham, NC has won the 2008 International Award for the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids’ Youth Advocate of the Year Award (YAYA)! From protesting at the Altria Shareholders Meeting in New York, training youth across the state, and joining the global movement by representing tobacco issues for youth at the United Nations, Morgan is definitely already a star in the tobacco prevention movement. As a part of her award, she will be honored at a gala in Washington, DC along with other key youth from across our nation that also work to promote a healthy and tobacco free future!

This will be the third year in a row where a youth from North Carolina AND Question Why has won a national YAYA award from the Campaign Tobacco for Free Kids.

Youth from Asheville City Schools and Question Why West teamed up to host a Policy Makers Luncheon on March 14, 2008 that knocked the socks off of more than 25 policy makers from the area. Youth presented about things like tobacco-free parks, smoke-free restaurants, peer education, and a whole lot more. They wanted to make sure powerful people in their community know the facts about tobacco.

Interested in hosting an event like this and want to find out how? Give us a jingle…we can help!
