Getting the word out to “Stop Smoking,” the Port St. Joe Elementary SWAT (Students Working Against Tobacco) Club made posters and lined Long Avenue last week for the “Great American Smokeout.”

The students also made displays encouraging students to never smoke.  

SWAT is a new club at Port St. Joe Elementary for fifth- and sixth-grade students. It is sponsored by the Florida Department of Health in Gulf County and is a Florida statewide youth organization working to mobilize, educated and equip Florida youth to revolt against and de-glamorize Big Tobacco.
