Choke Smokes is a combined effort of the Tobacco-Free Coalitions that exist in Jefferson and Keokuk Counties of Iowa. Our goal is to provide accurate and informative education about the dangers of using tobacco products while encouraging users to kick the habit and "choke out smoke".
Fairfield High School - Tobacco PSA's - Spring 2014
Heidi Grunwald and Brad Snowgren both teach Health at Fairfield High School in Fairfield, Iowa. As part of their teaching they have students produce Tobacco PSA"s that are put on YouTube to share and "like". The video with the most "likes" become the popular choise winner. The teachers also select their winner. Are you ready to "vote" and create this years winner?
I-Step (Iowa Students for Tobacco Education and Prevention) is a major focus of the coalition. We promote I-STEP in all the schools we work with in the counties.
