Grant Alert: Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids Youth Advocates of the Year
Our Youth Advocates of the Year Awards honor top young advocates from across the country — individuals who have fought hard to promote tobacco prevention legislation in their home states, reduce tobacco marketing to kids in their communities and stop their peers from using tobacco. The 2012 Youth Advocates of the Year Awards will be presented on May 17, 2012 in Washington, DC, at our Youth Advocates of the Year Awards Gala.

1 Group Winner (middle school and/or high school aged)
1 Military Youth Winner (grades 9-12)
1 National Award Winner (grades 9-12)
