OMG! 2019 Back to School Outreach Mini Grant

August 1 @ 8:00 am - September 20 @ 5:00 pm

Did you know?

From 2017 to 2018 there was a 78% increase in e-cigarette use among high school students nationwide.

Only one in three school districts in Kansas have comprehensive tobacco policies.

The tobacco industry spends an estimated $73.6 million on marketing in Kansas every year.

It's not just water vapor! E-cigarette aerosol includes harmful materials like nicotine, ultrafine particles, heavy metals, and cancer-causing chemicals.

One Juul pod has as much nicotine as a pack of cigarettes.

  • Hold a vape awareness activity or a vape-free spirit day at your school
