I know people that use tobacco and hope that I can influence them to quit. I was surprised to hear how many people in Ohio die from tobacco-related illnesses." Danny Ecker, Worthington Kilbourne High School, Columbus "I want to get some of my family members and friends to stop smoking. It is not healthy. I was shocked to learn about some of the chemicals that are put in cigarettes."

I am very against smoking and I don't like how tobacco companies target teens." Kevin Lowery, Garfield Heights High School, Garfield Heights "I quit smoking because I was in the band. Smoking and being in the band doesn't mix. It was hurting my health." Brandi Hall, Aiken High School, Cincinnati "I have been involved in tobacco advocacy for about four years. My grandfather died from lung cancer. I signed up to be on the web committee because these days technology is more important and a lot of kids are online and spend time there. It is a good way to reach those kids. Kids need to know that they can have fun without using tobacco." Kelly Park, Revere High School, Akron "I have been involved in anti-smoking programs for the last year. There are a lot of kids that smoke and I want to pass around the information to help kids not start smoking."

I learned about how influential advertising can be." Kira Heeley, Lakewood High School, Lakewood "I selected the advertising committee because it is what the outside will see on this campaign, it reaches out to people and really makes them start to believe. I want to help shape the campaign. I feel strongly about tobacco issues and I want to educate others because that is why I am here." Sarah Cooper, Northmont City Schools, Englewood "I want to do my part to smash the blatant capitalist greed the tobacco industries perpetrate and I also want to try and educate as many people as possible about the effects. I selected the music outreach program because music is universal and it will reach a wide variety of kids and age groups." Dylan Taylor-Lehman, Zanesville High School, Zanesville "I've always been involved in tobacco prevention. I hate seeing people smoke, its nasty and it kills people."
