Pushmataha Kids ‘Kick Butts’

April 6, 2012

Kids from Antlers, Moyers, Clayton and Rattan Schools took center stage in the fight against tobacco as they joined together for Pushmataha County’s 7th Annual Kick Butt’s Day. Kick Butt’s Day took place from 2:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 29th on the corner of Main and High Street (in front of FirstBank) in Antlers. Not only was this day represented in Pushmataha County, but more than 1,100 events were planned across the nation.

Organized by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and sponsored by the United Health Foundation, Kick Butts Day is an annual celebration of youth leadership and activism in the fight against tobacco use. On Kick Butts Day, youth encouraged their peers to stay tobacco-free and educate their communities about the dangers of tobacco and the tobacco industry’s harmful marketing practices.

Project SPIT was very proud of not only the youth who led the activist event to let Pushmataha residence know that they want a healthier Oklahoma but the schools Superintendents who supported the local youth by letting them out of school to attend this important event.
