On World No Tobacco Day 2017, students from Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Senior High School called attention to the continuing problem of tobacco use among New York State youth and called for an end to tobacco marketing to kids.

Students placed 146 pinwheels on school grounds, one for every New York teenager who becomes a daily smoker each week in NYS.  A series of lawn signs explained why reducing tobacco marketing to kids is critical to prevent youth smoking.
