Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) Members Participate in Local Park Cleanup Project
February 22, 2020

Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) at Bradford High School have had a very busy quarter.  In February these students partnered with the local Health Department to provide materials about Through With Chew Week (February 16-22).  The students set up a table full of resources about the dangers of Smokeless Tobacco and the purpose of Through With Chew Week.  Cessation resources were also provided in hopes to encourage users to make a plan to quit.


Tobacco litter that was collected by SWAT members at three local parks.
  During the month of March, the SWAT youth hosted their Annual Park Clean up.  The students went to three local parks, Edwards Road Complex, Thomas St Complex, and Wainwright Park.  The students use this event to encourage local decision makers to create new policies for our local parks and recreation areas.  Through this activity students are always amazed at the amount of litter we collect and gives them a greater sense of why policy change is so important and needed locally.
