Clark County ASAP Sponsors Bookmark Contest

The winner is Kennedy Partin of Baker Intermediate School

Kick Butts Day is a day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up, and seize control against Big Tobacco at more than 1,000 events planned by independent organizers across the United States and around the world.

We have made great strides in the fight against tobacco. But every day, more than 3,000 kids under 18 try smoking for the first time and 700 kids become new regular, daily smokers. Tobacco use is still the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., killing more than 480,000 people every year.

By getting involved in Kick Butts Day and other activities, America’s youth can raise awareness about the tobacco problem, encourage peers to be tobacco-free and support effective solutions to reduce tobacco use.

The Clark County Agency for Substance Abuse Policy (ASAP) Youth Network sponsored a bookmark contest at Baker Intermediate to get the students to think about tobacco and the dangers associated with it. To promote the contest, youth network members Sophie Sams and Laura Graves wrote and recorded a video that was shown every morning for a week on the

Baker News Program. This video included information on why tobacco is bad and also how to submit their bookmark entry form. During that week, homeroom teachers distributed the entry forms. The students were encouraged to be creative and come up with their own ideas and drawings to convey their message. The Clark County ASAP Youth Network members then collected the bookmark entries and chose a winner.

“There were so many good ones to choose from; they really had a hard time. Baker is gifted with some talented students,” said Melissa Stocker, Coordinator, Clark County ASAP. “In the end, the youth network chose the one from Kennedy Partin whom they felt used both a good depiction of the Kick Butts Day message, as well as artfully done.”

Clark County ASAP Youth Network Wins Award

Members of the Clark County Agency for Substance Abuse Policy Youth Network won the award for Best Depiction of Message at the recent Keep It Real: Remix Video Contest.

The Keep It Real campaign is a youth-driven community effort to educate young people concerning the risks of underage drinking, prescription drug use, and nicotine. The guiding premise behind this campaign has been that youth are more likely to understand the message when they help design the message. The Clark County campaign, Wait 4 21 (a 30 second video on underage drinking) can be seen locally on Channel 5.

ASAP Youth Network members who participated in the 30 second video include Emily Harrison, Ally Ledford, Brooks Harrison, Shelby Stocker, and Casey Pasley. The group is led by Melissa Stocker, Clark County Agency for Substance Abuse Board Coordinator.
