Meet our 2015 Youth Advocates of the Year

Posted by Erica Olmstead on 5 Jun 2015

Every year, we honor top youth leaders in the fight against tobacco through the Youth Advocates of the Year Awards. These teens have advocated for tobacco prevention policies, taken on the tobacco industry and its deceptive marketing, and helped keep peers tobacco-free.

On May 14, we honored a national winner, a group winner and four regional winners from across the United States.

Youth Advocacy Ambassadors

Youth Advocates of the Year Award (YAYA) winners serve as Youth Advocacy Ambassadors for the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids for a year. During the year, they receive training to develop their advocacy skills and put their training into practice by working with the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids on policy priorities at the local, state and national levels, and training and empowering other youth advocates around the country.

Interested in having one of our Youth Advocacy Ambassadors speak at your event? Contact us today at kbdinfo@kickbuttsday.org for more information.
