The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department will be working with three area high schools March 24 to mark Kick Butts Day. This annual event gives students the chance to promote tobacco-free behavior in creative ways.
There are several fantastic photo opportunities on this day, and we encourage you to make it out to highlight the hard work these students are putting into their displays. The following is a brief look at some of the events scheduled:
Tates Creek High School
* Hang T-shirts from the cafeteria to represent the number of daily deaths from tobacco use;
* Use sidewalk chalk to write tobacco facts in front of the building;
* Collect cigarette butts around the school grounds the week prior and present them to the principal;
Lafayette High School
· Write chalk-outlines on the front lawn with tobacco-death related statistics in them;
· Write on the mirrors in the bathrooms
Bryan Station High School
· Set up a table during lunch with materials, including a household chemicals demonstrations, pig lungs, and tobacco stats.
