Superior High School Students Running Anti-vaping Campaign

"Don't Blow It."


That's the name of a campaign done by a group of Superior High School Students in the group 'DECA.' The goal is to educate other students in the area about the dangers of youth vaping. 

Jaylynn Glaus, Chloe Kitnap and their partner, Jackson, are the brains behind the campaign.

"In the beginning of the year, we saw this was a growing problem among everyone in the high school," Kitnap says. "(We thought) that was super-timely and something we could really target throughout our school."

They started by doing surveys throughout the high school and middle school, and gave presentations to 7th grade students. After that, the campaign was brought to a state DECA competition.

Now, they're taking their campaign to Orlando, Florida to compete with other DECA groups around the country. 

"We are super excited," Glaus says. "That was a huge highlight of our DECA career."

To prepare, the group is aiming to reach out to broaden their outreach to elementary schools and beyond. The competition is April 26 through May 1.
