Clean The Air!

2020

This grant-funded program is multi-faceted and one of the central goals is to build a smoke/vape-free culture in our schools and to teach students refusal skills and self-advocacy.

We have developed a PSA contest and invite your school site to participate with at least one video entry!  Students will be asked to create a short PSA video highlighting the devastating consequences of smoking/vaping.  Students will also be asked to connect saying NO to smoke/vape to their school wide PBIS expectations.  So, these videos are really a great opportunity to showcase PBIS at your site and to apply it to a serious public health threat for our community.

Student videos will be judged and students can win gift cards up to $25!  Winning videos will also be showcased on social media and presented to the Board of Education.

MK Goes To The UK
