Take Down Tobacco
FCCLA and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids continue to partner to engage FCCLA members in the Take Down Tobacco advocacy program that helps students understand the dangers of tobacco and nicotine use and how their voices can help create the first tobacco and nicotine-free generation!
Why get involved?
In the U.S., tobacco use kills more than 480,000 people every year – more than AIDS, alcohol, car accidents, illegal drugs, murders, and suicides combined. As part of FCCLA’s Student Body National Program, we are partnering with CTFK to help reduce tobacco’s deadly toll. CTFK advocates for public policies proven to prevent kids from smoking, to help smokers quit, and to protect everyone from secondhand smoke. You can play an important role in the fight against tobacco and its harmful effects.
Taking Down Tobacco Contest Information
Contest Deadline: April 30, 2021
3 Ways Your Chapter Can Be Eligible for the Taking Down Tobacco Contest
- Guide Take Down Tobacco 101 or The Rise of Vaping trainings. Advisers or members can deliver in-person or virtual trainings at Chapter meetings, in classes, and at assemblies.
- Students at your school can complete the online Taking Down Tobacco 101 course.
- Students at your school can complete The Rise of Vaping online course.
Pro tip: When students create online Take Down Tobacco accounts, make sure they include their school name even if they aren’t FCCLA members so your FCCLA chapter gets credit for those completed courses.
- The first 25 FCCLA chapters to guide and log a Take Down Tobacco 101 or The Rise of Vaping training for a minimum of 20 students OR have at least 20 students complete the Take Down Tobacco 101 and/or The Rise of Vaping online courses will earn $150.
- FCCLA Chapters that train at least 100 students and/or have at least 100 students complete Take Down Tobacco 101 or Rise of Vaping online courses through April 30, 2021 are entered to win one of three $500 prizes (to be awarded after April 30, 2021).
Chapters may also want to use this opportunity as a Public Policy Advocate STAR event and/or to apply for a Student Body National Program Award.
