Kids in Illinois to Unite Against Tobacco Use

Kids in Illinois will unite against tobacco use on Wednesday as they join thousands of young people nationwide to mark Kick Butts Day. More than 1,000 events are planned across the United States for this annual day of youth activism, sponsored by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. Students from Red Hill Junior/Senior High School in Bridgeport will display tombstones and create a skit to perform for elementary students at Bridgeport Grade School and Sumner Attendance Center to encourage a tobacco-free community. The event gets underway at 10 a.m.
