Taking action against Big Tobacco

Kick Butts Day is a national day of activism that empowers youth to speak up and take action against Big Tobacco at hundreds of events from coast to coast. Each year, Kick Butts Day takes place on the third Wednesday in March.

Teachers, youth leaders, and health advocates organize these events and mobilize students to raise awareness about the problems of tobacco use in schools and in the community.

One of the signature events of Kick Butts Day is the “Decorate a Door” contest. School students are encouraged to decorate a classroom door with an anti-tobacco message. Here are some doors from the 2011 contest.
