Kick Butts Day is a national day of activism that empowers youth to stand up and speak out against tobacco. PEER Services partnered with the Skokie Health Department and Lincoln Junior High School to plan a local Kick Butts Day event. During the week of March 18th, PEER Services staff and Ofr. Ronderos, Lincoln's School Resource Officer, offered educational and fun activities that helped students learn facts about tobacco, including: "Who Wants to Be a Billionaire" school assembly, BINGO, crossword puzzles and wordsearches.
Students were very enthusiastic about the week's events – as one 8th grade student stated – "What are we doing tomorrow, this was fun!" Early in the week, students and teachers brought in old t-shirts and all students wrote a pledge about why they choose to be tobacco-free. Students and staff volunteered time after school to help rope t-shirts together, creating a prominent display on Lincoln Ave in Skokie.
